The universe in her

She is fierce like fire

Her flames crackle

and spark


Shes soft like soil

Her soul

rooted to earth

She gleams like sun

But shimmers in the night

She’s broken many of hearts

And her ego puts up a fight


this ones the rarest of them all

For she realized that

In order to fly,

We all must fall

So fall she did


And again

Until she tried

a different approach

and let love in

She learned to love

from within

To forgive

To Let go

And to say yes before no

She stumbles at times but

She now knows her powers

and that she’s neither fire nor earth

but the entire universe
