today i shall be radiant by ShadowDancer

today i shall be radiant
standing firm
i shall reach upward
and glow with the stars
and laugh with a song
that defeats the gray
(cowering and cold
behind me)
today i shall not show
my pain, or doubt, or self-loathing
(this wind will blow them to yesteryear,
if only for today)

today i shall bask in what is
and in what is in me
today i shall be radiant

I am a dreamer, artist, and mother. I dance in the rain, spend too much time reading books, and live for my family. I am a gypsy, poet, musician, and artist. But most of all, I am a butterfly fairy. Come dream with me.
