Find Yourself

Find Yourself

By Emily Radebaugh…

Hands that have been shaking

Have finally fallen still

A chest clenched so tight

Has finally unwound itself

Lungs that barely grasp air

Have felt a relieving gust of wind

Are you happy for me?

I ask myself in the mirror

With a light heart

A mind running ragged

Has finally emptied itself

Of fear and panic

A faint smile

Tiptoed across my lips

I felt it

In my heart

In my aching bones

Travelling through muscles

That have been tense for so long

Truth is

We’re all different

But there’s something

Kind of fantastic

About that, isn’t there?

And the best thing

To hold on to in life

Is each other

Because once you find yourself

Everyone else will find you, too
