Damaris Castillo, Phoenix writer

The winds, the tides, the sun

And everything in between.

The only things I wouldn’t run from,

No matter what I’ve seen.


I would sail away in the boat of freedom

And not care if I was alone,

Because everything was worth what I had become.


A woman made of love and affirmation

Whose past was that of a dream.

Her new endeavors being her only fixation,

She knew she would shine with gleam.
