My Escape

by Brenda Henderson

I've been RUNNING; out of time; out of opportunities to speak my truth.

Soon there could be an OCEAN between my past and my future hope.

I struggle not to DRINK the wine of fear that tries to keep me anchored to the people, places and things that have held me down and back like CEMENT.

All the while in my mind and heart I race toward you my "Wish Fulfillment" and "Heart's Dream!"
