New Course

Starting off with slight trepidation,

She finally took the step,

A decision not so easy,

Taken on one’s own.

It is but just one life,

Should it be by another’s terms,

Why let its flow be congealed,

With constant expectations and judgement.

Having lost a part of herself,

To the society and its norms.

Why to lose even more,

And live with regret.

So putting an oxygen mask,

She chose the hard path,

Speaking up for what matters,

And celebrating life’s new direction.
