The Choice

December 20, 2008

Such confidence in her stride
Such radiance on her face
And yet, within her heart
Her sorrows were not displaced

She strode upon the stage
Standing at the podium, tall
Looked upon the masses
Remembered old feelings, small

She looked into the eyes
Of one who listened, true
Decided in that instant
To look at others new

The one place and the other
In that moment become as one
The fear that held her back
Today and forever gone
