Transformation

No pain
Can this be so?
Energy abounds
I don't remember seeing this clearly
The sun shines so brightly
Everywhere
Newness of life
As if I've been reborn
I am different
I am not the same
Who have I become?
What is left of me?
Apprehension
I look and gasp
Those eyes
Are they mine?
The clarity
Depth of wisdom
Acceptance and assurance
Strength
The figure before me transformed
Velvet Covered Steel
I am free
Gluten Free
