40 will be declared the, "Decade of Mastery!"
My sassiness will be untamed along with my hair.
I will let curls go unchecked while I twirl in the rain.
Painful scars will no longer guard against the possible joy of each day.
People can talk and feel any which way,
it won't affect me.
The ghosts that have haunted my inner thoughts will be thrown out
I will finally be a friend to me.
Hopes and dreams from childhood will be exchanged for
the result of choices I've made.
I will celebrate them.
Alone I know what I did.
In solitary confidence I will celebrate.
This body is strong.
This spirit is too.
We rejoice its mastery.
