There was a time when I had very few choices;
When I felt powerless and small.
I heard the sound of others voices,
But couldn’t hear my own at all.
But as I got healthier and stronger within,
I found I have something to say.
I heard my soul through all the din,
Telling me a much better way.
Now I find that I am more powerful and wise;
That my choices are up to me.
I’m grateful for what I now realize:
The truth of who I’m meant to be.
