From Deep Inside
From deep inside comes the courage to choose love over fear,
To embrace our genuine selves,
With all of our human foibles.
To find strength when we feel weak,
To seek opportunity where there is challenge.
From deep inside, a small voice whispers,
Reminding us to believe in ourselves,
To shine our light into the darkness,
Spreading beauty out into the world,
Shunning the abyss of negativity.
From deep inside, the seeds of possibility wait,
Ready to burst forth in Spring-like abandon,
With promises of renewal, of second chances.
And like the blooms opening up to greet the warm sun,
Our hearts open again, full of love, full of hope.
