Slowly

Slowly I open

Like the freshest of blooms

Slowly taking form

Revealing my color

Finally showing who I am

I am still weak and small

My strength not yet known

Yet I struggle on

I yearn for life

For freedom

To be imbued with ravenous sunlight that devours all my shadows

Take it, cut my shadow away that I may be free of my darkness, my past

That I may be free to stand in the truth of my destiny

To bloom where I have been planted
