I really, really like this poem…and so I thought I would share it with you. 
She Chose
She realized she had this one.
This big, bold,
and beautiful life.
And she realized
she didn’t want to live it
chasing and crying
and apologizing.
Starving and fearing
and regretting.
She realized
she wanted to live it
proudly and freely
and creatively.
Lovingly and fully
and sweetly.
She realized
she could choose.
And so, she chose.
