Acceptance - a poem

This poem was written on day 21 of my cycle, and it's optimism and happiness seems appropriate as spring finally arrives.

And then came a time

When I learnt how to sing


Dress as a bird

With its eloquent wing


Strut through the streets

Soar through the sky


Rejoice in my body

Look into the eye


Of another, whose gaze

Was fixed upon mine


And knowing I was seen

I learnt how to fly
