Around the bend…

I’m a new woman
I’m a whole new girl
I just woke up, in the middle of this evening
and saw a whole new me… looking right into my own eyes

I’m standing here
on my own two feet
I balanced on that wire
I made it all the way across
I gathered up my own bones
and took them to my own promised land
I took me by the hand
and honored my pain
and honored my power
to heal myself

I’m standing here
and broken
and whole again
all by myself
and the very next step I take
will be to just exactly where I want to go
and maybe you’re right
maybe I can’t see down that road
nobody can
nobody can
nobody can
see what’s around that bend

so what are you so scared of?
