I know this is going to be a matter of opinion and that is fine but it struck a cord that I personally thought was a little shallow.
Just because I have tattoos does not make any less a lady. They are there to remind me of how strong a woman I have become and to remind me that instead of dwelling on the negative of the scars in my life I have chosen to make them beautiful.
You can like them or not that is an opinion but don't assume you know the person behind them unless you ask.
For I am...
Your eyes when you can not see
Your ears when you can not hear
Your voice when you can not be heard
Your touch when you can not feel
Your strength when you fall
Your guide when you are lost
Your quiet in the chaos
Your flame to ignite the passion deep inside
For I am...
The key to your heart, mind and soul
"Let there be an opening into the quiet that lies beneath the chaos, where you find the peace you did not think possible and see what shimmers within the storm."
~ John O'Donohue
On new wings she flies, unsteady but with purpose towards the wide open sky.
With each beat her confidence grows as she embraces with wonder at all that she sees. For her eyes and mind are wide open and like her wings are ready to soar. She knows she must have patience for she does not have quite that much strength so slow and steady she keeps it until it's time to set free.
She sees the shadows falling behind her and the light that shines above. Guiding her direction further and higher into the unknown.
