NEW BIRTH

Today is her new birth.
Serenity now, where fear was a factor,
Bringing life full circle.
Back to the days of childhood
When fear had not yet taken residence
in her heart.

She uncovered a gateway to a new journey.
A journey with dreams of possibilities and love,
of joy and contentment,
Where dreams of foreboding once reigned

Those few terrible moments of the past,
Entrapped in the cyclone of fear,
Wrapped in the nightmare of depression -
All memories now,
Never to be part of her life again.

No longer having to hide behind a smile,
No longer laughing to disguise the tears.

Life has changed.
Rebirth has come.
For love alone, in the end,
conquers all
