Maxine Smith

-x- Finally -x-


Finally finding my feet

Planted firm on the ground

That dread of defeat

Distant noise in the background


Time is now for success

Relishing with every breath

Thriving and fearless

Unashamed and tearless


Living dreams reality

Wings open and set free

Souring the skies of possibility

I finally dare to believe in me
