Her Declaration (a poem on courage)

cody-black-327753

skipping beats
blushing cheeks
hands clenched so tight

she takes one last deep breathe
steps out in front of the world
looks up with a fierce glow in her eyes
opens her mouth and begins to share her heart

right here
right now
she declares who she is
her mission
her crusade
her souls whispers

a fire-in-the-belly feeling arises
empowered
inspired
courageous she feels

she takes one step forward into the unknown journey that awaits her
authentically herself
her hearts desires and ambitions
she shines bright

today it begins
today she begins.

By Danika Downting

(I wrote this poem in 2013 when I first shared my blog with the world.)
