Poem: Letting Her Soul Soar

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Taking Back My Life" by Kimberly Caldwell

poem-letting-her-soul-soar

She is happy for choosing
to love him,
to set her life apart
giving unto him only.

Her one regret -
doing everything for him,
making it too easy
for him to take her for granted,
a lesson she learned.

She is tired of the past
holding her back,
she is releasing the chains,
letting her soul soar.

Yesterday is no longer,
it is a memory to cherish,
a lesson to carry with her
as she begins a fresh new life,
tailor made for her.

"Today My Life Begins" by Bruno Mars

Thank you, Lynne.

It is bittersweet. But thats the way it goes sometimes.

I hope she is successful in taking her life back.

Thanks for reading.

Bittersweet, she gives up everything for him, then he takes her for granted. It's good that she takes back her life, though.

Excellent poem, Brenda.
