Once Upon A Time …

by Michelle Maynard Koenig


Once upon a time there was a girl

who feared happiness

. . .  now she laughs

who feared to speak

. . . now releases her voice

who feared imperfection

. . . now dances with truth

who feared death

. . . now trusts life

who feared love

. . . now introduces her soul to everyone

who feared tomorrow

. . . now welcomes today

who feared yesterday

. . . now recognizes its lessons

who feared the burden of doubt

. . . now soars on the wings of courage

Once upon a time there was a girl

who journeyed into her own;

nothing is ever as bad as it seems

nor is it as good as it can only be.

She finds the possible in the impossible

and life is like a dream.
