Know

She knows herself with certainty,
Holds her head high, confidence
At home in her smile and stance.

She knows the world around her,
The beat that moves the days along
With a rhythm she dances to freely.

She knows what she wants from life,
Never settling for anything less
Than a dream and the chance to shine.

But she knows nothing of him.
He is a secret she hasn’t uncovered,
He is a power she hasn’t unleashed.

He is all she wants to know.

  1. So softly sketched and atmospheric…and the last verses served as the antithesis that perfectly wrapped the poem up. Like creating a background, then gracefully putting the subject into focus. Beautifully done. 🙂
