My vastness was never in question

The year draws to a close, an introspective time for this introvert! And so, I turn to poetry, mine and others.  I’ll share one a day here, till the new year begins with its fresh blank pages upon which to pour out our story.

My wings will not be clipped by
your sharp looks of disapproval
I will soar to heights
of new understanding
where I am no longer your child
too short to measure
up to your expectations
but an eagle floating on wings
of mindfulness and compassion
in a sky where my vastness
was never in question
