Transformation


Meisha and the Mermaid  -  Wreck Beach 2013

The girl and the sea
the wind and the sky
waves of blonde hair
blowing in the wind

She sits and waits
for something to change
but the wind still cries
the same cries it cried before

She screams
throwing her head so high
"What do you want from me?"
"Who am I supposed to be?"

The clouds roll in
lighting strikes
and the sky begins to cry
falling heavy

She plants her feet 
deep into the sand
"I don't care anymore,
  I can only be me."

She raises her arms
like wings in a stormy night
"It's time to let go."
and she jumps into the sea

In the distance 
she looks back towards land
then the splash of a tail
and she is gone.

Reclaiming

~*~

I'm reclaiming my voice and it's about time.

It's been ten months since I packed up my life and flew half way around the world to pursue my dream.

I've had highs, lows and everything in between.

Now it's time to reclaim and regain my power.

I'm sick of being "the nice girl", the girl who tries to help, the girl who just listens.

No - now it's my turn.  

My turn to speak, my turn to be heard and my turn to feel.

I'm opening up my lungs, I'm standing my ground and saying, "This is what I want and this is what I deserve."

I've worked hard to get to where I am.

The actors life may seem glamorous, sparkly, full of fun and entertainment -
but do you know what it takes to get those few brief moments?

Dedication. Persistance. Drive. Motivation. Determination.

Life is not handed to me on a silver platter, everything I touch does not turn to gold -
I work hard to get to where I am and will not stop at that.

I have a dream, and my dream is to succeed.
