Risen - Poem by Joel Nicholas George

as i rise from the ashes of our relationship,
i take new shape,
i feel the winds of opportunity take beneath my wings,
my strength,
fueled by resentment an heartbreak is unmeasureable,
my vision,
no longer blurred by the intricacies we call love is set on the highest mountains....
i will never be bound to the emotions of the heart again....
i have risen from the worst of them all,
and nothing shall stop me now...

    Where are you going with this poem? 'i take new shape', 'winds of opportunity', 'my vision'; what are you heading towards now that you are out of this relationship? This is the seeds of something good, but it needs clarity.
    Also, no capitalization can be a useful part of your poetry, but in this specific poem, it is a little distracting and doesn't serve to make it clearer. The name is very solid, strong, and I like it.
