This past Saturday October 10th, we joined each other in the ZOOM room for guided meditation and creative writing. One participant named Suzanne, took a creative writing prompt and wrote a magnificent piece called Becoming Me. The prompt was from my original Woman with Wings note cards: Stand in the light of who you are, no apologies.
I am becoming. I will become ...
A true Me, an authentic Me,
A Me that is safe and loved and free.
A Me not afraid.
A me, bold and sassy, grabbing life by the handfuls,
Gobbling it down and asking for more.
A Me with beauty inside that wants to spring forth
In prose and art and love.
A Me, just as I am, that can stand UP
Toe to toe,
Eye to eye, and say here I AM
and not worry that someone like you CANCER is going
to cut me down.
