Sometimes its so close I can almost taste it,
My body quivers with anticipation
Before that fleeting glimpse fades.
Here I am, at the beginning of my journey
My breath held, the first step taken
My eyes wide open, I am ready to learn.
Will I find what I wait for?
Will I know it if I do?
If I'm lucky.
Am I ready to fully become the woman I am?
I hope so.
