I had two arms, two legs, a chin, and elbows back then,
Yet they seemed unconnected to my mind;
As though I was not the power cord for my limbs or
Today I feel more in alignment,
Though I know there are still twist-ties of self-confidence and
Doubt to overcome.
The twists today are my own doing
And positivity grows along my spine like mossy hope,
Keeping me moving, breathing, and
For happier moments and further alignment.
