1000 miles embraced by shadows of hope, a poem for @MandyRowden by Tracy Diane Miller

Even as a little girl
Even at a young age
I memorized the lyrics carved into my soul
As life created the stage
1000 miles embraced by shadows of hope
Often on weary feet
Not once did I entertain thoughts of surrender
I banish the feelings of defeat
Does this mean I can’t be hurt
When a mountain of emotions
Bury me with unrelenting force
Yet I walk with confidence
1000 miles embraced by shadows of hope
Where faith in my future
Is my gift of choice
