Stronger Today Than Yesterday - Poem by Lisa Arnold

Believing in
more of who
I am today
than yesterday.

Savoring
all of what
in life
I have to gain.

Feeling
in the depth
of my weary soul,
inner desires
rising as my life,
I begin to reclaim.

Accepting
my fate
as I cling
to my faith.

I now see
hints of sun
where there
is rain.

I now sense
traces of joy
emerging from
beneath profound
pain.

Brightness
outside of
darkness,
I now witness.

Inside of
bitterness,
I now taste
sweetness.

I hold more
in the palms
of my hands
today than
ever before.

For now, I
dance solo
in my
frenzied
life tango.

But it is okay
because I am
stronger today
than yesterday.
