In Her Light

It was all wrong - in the beginning. The day had taken its first step on that other foot.

She wanted to run. She wanted to hide. She wanted to pull those covers up over her head..and wish it all away.

It was the light - that scared her. It was being seen in its luminance. It was about having her words heard when spoken aloud.

But then....and quite unexpectedly - she found herself still and in that moment..with absolutely nowhere other or else to go.

She found herself standing straight. Standing tall. Standing in her brilliance..in her new-found power and strength. In that light - that wasn't nearly as scarey as she'd believed.
