Day 27 - How Did I Get Here

Day 27

Exploring poetry in all its forms.

How Did I Get Here

On my birthday that year,
Not so long ago,
I took a chance, risked shattering 
My dream.
With palms sweaty, heart racing,
I plunged into the unknown.
I had no idea if I could, 
If it would work,
No confidence in who I was,
A woman with
With deep roots in the mountains
Of the forty shades, 
Storytellers for ancestors.
I should have known I could.
And I did.
And here I am.
