Softened Stings

The stings have softened
The bite has eased
The venom has faded
Sirens of pain
Have quieted

I float unbridled
Easily standing on my feet
I rise a little higher
Than my purview
My legs no longer buckle

Peace is a godsend
Like a blown kiss in the wind
Blessings lift our burdens
The weightlessness of release
Is a gift

Breathing comes easy
With unobstructed airways
Distress dissolves
To free the flow
Of life
