because a door
has unlocked behind my eyes
& begins to open
I see with new brightness

I am whole again
& my words
once trapped beneath a tongue
that could no longer shape them
paralyzed with grief

are again free to soar
this time, without limits
inside the new voice

of my own renaissance

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
