First time freedoms

When it happened
She knew she’d never forget it.
When liberty came to find her and
Coaxed her out of her chains,
Showed her how firmly
Her feet could stand on the ground,
How comfortable her own skin could feel
How lovingly the gentle breeze could caress her face
How high her heart could soar.
First time freedoms
Are magical.
In a moment
You come to know a version of yourself
You never knew was possible
Living in a body that is altogether different-
Eyes that the world anew
Ears atuned to heaven’s melodies
A spirit alive to freedom.
