She Soars - November 13, 2012

Poem She SoarsI wrote this poem when my daughter was dealing with a possible Apraxia diagnosis at age two.  A misdiagnosis by someone who measured her before it made sense, before she was even three.  Always get a second and third opinion, before you let your thoughts invade your heart.  Think with your mind and you’ll find a solution, no matter what.


It left me with worry.  It left us lost in a challenge. But, we were lucky.  She was misdiagnosed.  But, she still had to work hard to catch up.


Maybe she was a late talker.  I don’t know what.   Maybe she was like Einstein and just late to get her words out.


I’m proud that she learned to try at such an early age.  I tell her to try no matter what the outcome in life.  I tell her I will be proud of her no matter what.


She learned lessons young.  I believe it will benefit her.  It already has.  She perseveres in ways that most never do.  She smiles everyday.  She’s happy everyday.  She believes in herself.  She may be young, but she is a warrior.  She soars, even now at four.


She Soars

A pint-sized melody
A mere child with the resilience
To calm others steady
Just by her existence


An angel wrapped in disguise
Her challenges bigger than my imagination
But she doesn’t compromise
Regardless of her situation


She stands taller than most
In heart
She leaps farther than most
In faith
She grips life stronger than most
In belief


At age 2, she is an inspiration
A fighter with a perfect record
No indignation
Just rampant accord


A fairy princess
With wings stretched farther
Than our jaded egos can obsess


She is humble

Not knowing different
She swoops, flies, smiles
She soars


She soars so high
We can only see her light
Her light so bright
We can still see her smile


She soars

And forever will, fly high…
