Self Motivated

Pleads with herself to make a mark,
cold shadowed fears play in the dark.
Always knows how to light the spark,
but hesitance whispers loud barks.

Clumsy vigor loses its pace,
runs quickly while standing in place.
Prays for the slightest touch of grace,
so scared to fall straight on her face.

All knots come loose to swiftly lift,
stands bold and proud, embraces shift.
Inner strength smolders ever swift,
non committal, deep burdens drift.

Every new step carries great force,
serene peace travels through her pores.
Focuses views like a racehorse,
creates brave moves, guided by source.
