Freedom to Float

Why do I lead with my heart?


Despite the drama

Which often carries ample trauma


Life will tease

It is not my place to please


My past provided plenty of rope

Now unrestrained to find new hope


A man I met who preferred to elope

Brought light & delight to areas remote


Confinement of my soul no longer exists

Next up – discovery of bliss


Excuse me, I do not mean to gloat

Learning to love has been my freedom to float
