    Here i am again for the world to see.
    My arms spread wide exposing my heart
    and its vulnerability.
    Years have passed by without a pen in my hand.
    I have been through so much
    and still my heart would not allow pen to touch paper.
    I was numb and dry eyed,
    not knowing how to cope with loss.
    but now here i am with my eyes closed,
    and salty water flowing down my cheeks.
    I am thankful that my heart still beats.
    My skin is warm,
    and my veins pump life.
    For years i was just a souless body,
    cold and blue.
    Drowning in my own sorrows.
    but not anymore...
    Now i shall open my eyes and smile
    and tell my stories.
    I will smile because i made it through the storm.
    I will smile because my stories will help someone else make it through.
    I smile.... because my pen will never again stop writing what my heart feels.

    glad to see you around, again
    ready to get down, again
    hands opened wide...and heart exposed, again
    putting pen to paper, again
    standing from the sorrows
    and ready to smile, again
    ...to walk that mile, again

    welcome home.

    again.
