I dig my fingers into the umber earth,
letting the ancient soil embrace me
with heat and power of ancestors past.

I lift my tear-streaked face to the sky
and let the sun caress my skin
as the air wafts through me and
blows way the crippling fear
etched into my heart.

The simmering fire flickers,
casting shadows over my naked flesh
as I absorb the power of my
new-found strength,
feeling it ablaze in my soul.

With a determined mind
I walk on confident feet
into the roaring ocean,
letting its vivid waves
take me into its arms
and wash away all the
lingering pain.
