She folded her palms
asked for forgiveness
standing on the edge
gathering the courage
to take another step
and let everything go
tired of everything
wounded by everyone.
Suddenly the sun showed up in full glory
birds started to sing his praises.
She saw only flowers, butterflies around
and she felt something near her feet.
Looking down she saw a small fawn
deserted by mom licking her feet,
Gently she picked the tiny fawn up,
held it to her bosom and returned.
