    shadow woman trapped
    in an hourglass, awaiting
    for the sands to disappear;

    grain by grain, day by day
    the weight of life is removed
    making the skies clearer;

    She was freed from her pain,
    watching her past rescind
    into the abyss below her;

    she struggles to grab hold
    for fear she will meet
    the same fate as the sand

    shadow woman balanced by
    the edges of her dreams
    enjoying a life of freedom;

    the future is bright, the
    road clear and her smile
    opens the door to possibilites;

    shadow woman dropped her
    guard long enough to see
    life turn the hourglass
    upside down;
