Free Ride

You relayed my fate
Among your unyielding stance, your innocent
    eyes reflected my inner turmoil.
I glimpsed my struggles, my insecurities.
Yet, there also resides a strength, a resilience
    never before acknowledged.
Though engulfed by your commanding presence,
I chose to finally rise.
To stand tall and mighty like yourself
It is in this moment of empowerment, you flinch.
Whether in agreement or permission, I can't be sure.
But as a spare another glance upon your eyes,
    I swear they are smiling back at me.
So, I take you on a celebratory ride, for you bestowed
    upon me the gift of freedom.
Together, we venture toward the future.
