Exhale

She held her breath and waited

Looking for a permit to be who she really was

For someone to say, OK, now you can be you

It never occurred to her it was her choice

Until it was almost too late

She released her breath and stepped forward

Into the beauty of the unknown

And went to see who she would find inside

Inspired by The Daily Post Daily Word Prompt: permit
