    Believing in
    more of who
    I am today
    than yesterday.

    Savoring
    all of what
    in life I have
    to gain.

    Feeling the
    depth of my
    soul, rising
    as I crave
    my desires.

    Accepting
    my fate
    as I cling
    to my faith.

    I now
    see sun
    where there
    is rain.

    I now
    sense joy
    where there
    is pain.

    I now see
    brightness
    outside of
    the rain.

    I now taste
    sweetness
    inside of
    bitterness.

    I hold
    not a lot,
    in my hands,
    but it is more,
    from you
    than I ever got.

    Today, I'm
    dancing solo
    in my crazy
    life tango.

    But it is okay
    because I am
    stronger today
    than yesterday.

    Just this morning I was thinking how I used to wake up in the morning and dread the day. Now I barely want to sleep because I am excited to rise. I feel you on this poem, Sierra, and I know where you're coming from.
