For A Lifetime

She reaches the edge of a cliff
Her toes dangle over the edge
Her eyes stare down at the ground below her
She stands there
For a lifetime
Wondering what awaits her
On the other side of destiny

Her arms raised like wings
Her head thrown back as the wind catches her breath
She falls to her knees there
For a lifetime
Wondering what will save her
On the other side of freedom

Her tears fall like rain
Her hands hide the shame
She pauses there
For a lifetime
Her shoulder feels the warmth of a touch
She can't see
She discovers comfort and hope
She runs to it
For a lifetime
