Waking the Wild Woman

Into the Light

Waking the Wild Woman 

I am waking


Yes, I am

I am no longer the child born

Nor the woman scorned

I am waking 


Slowly finding self

Aware of my spirit

Uncloaking the façade

No longer needing to fear it


Welcoming the unknown

Wondering out loud

Trepidation set aside

Lifting this leaden cloud


No more hiding

Inviting her out

To breathe the air

Not a whisper, a shout


Not searching, but finding

Not looking, but seeing

Not hearing, but listening

A human being


Yes, I am

I am no longer the child born

Nor the woman scorned

I am waking


I am changing

For the Better

For myself

Without your help


I am waking the wild woman 

Shaking off the mask 

Stepping into the light 

and slipping away from the past 


I am waking
