Cultivating Hope


“Cultivating Hope” by Elizabeth D’Angelo

This is me, healed
This is me, free
This is my body, unchained and un-seamed
—Yet that is only the part that you see…
That’s nothing more than one Miracle piece…

The battle, it rages
It screams and it fights
To get my mind thinking that “this is it”…

I am powerful, mighty
A warrior, fierce—
I am strong, I am whole
I can cast out all fears—

Darkness cannot overtake my bright soul
White as the stars, I will sparkle and glow
Atmosphere ebbs—
Watch me dance, twirl, and flow.
