Because You Want To

That ever burning fire in your soul,
Will make you shine,
In many shades of radiant glow,
And your refusal to be constrained,
Will guide you to liberation,
Forcing your opponent to surrender and bow.

And Because you want to,
Your determination will shape you,
To what you want to be,

And will take you,
Where you’re destined to go.

  1. Growing older is such a beautiful climb. Life is a gift, heart and mind, all that we each must go through, should not our souls define? Your poem is lovely! Just lovely.
