Memories became triggers,
encountered thoughts all linger.
Worn visions were much bigger,
exhaustion killed her vigor.
Wished the past was retractive,
and future days attractive.
Her head always combative,
unfocused mind abstractive.
A provocative day dream,
muffles all loud inner screams.
Horizons of bright light beams,
form ambitions with pure gleam
Lost hopes dissolve gracefully,
delights appear gleefully.
Her heart dances playfully,
she ponders life joyfully.
Minds carry intelligence,
while fears provide hesitance.
Bring power to existence,
by giving faith precedence.
This knowledge was well confined,
miracles held deep inside.
Her soul a beautiful guide,
transformed small steps into strides.
