New year.
New start.
     to be made
          to be decided
               to follow through.

And that can be scary…
               …and exciting.


Will I like it?
Will I be accepted?
Is it everything I want it to be?

Most important,
Can a single mother
          with a not so elegant past
find her place amongst these strangers?

And will I be equal
          and not place myself beneath them?
And will I allow my soul
     to shine
          rather than hiding it in fear
               as has been my habit for years?


Only time will tell.
And this is the time to do it.
I will make the change.
I will let my soul sing.
And I will no longer hide
          or apologize
For a faith that I know is right.
