Courage: A New Beginning.

For once 
In all her madness
She stood still. 
The longing desire for wandering had paused as she found contentment where she was. 
Even if that lasted only briefly it was something worth noting. 
She called adventure by it's name, but this one time she silenced her voice and welcomed the quiet. 
Envious of her own heartbeat she'd take on endless activities just to feel it pound through her chest and rattle her ribcage. 
She became Her own definition of crazy. 
It wasn't only that rush of adrenaline that poured through her veins, 
It's a war best fought under the influence and in her rage she'd find an escape.
Except this time it was not that way at all
In fact she learned to find peace in destruction and to simply let go. 
Her thoughts usually contained in a scattered environment paused for a moment. 
She was a strange woman with too much passion but maybe that's what made her so fascinating. 
It's all starting to make sense to her now,
It turns out she didn't have to run to be free 
All she had to do was breathe. 
She inhaled the flames that set her soul on fire.
Confidence felt temporary and courage was never achieved but after stepping into the fire,  she inherited both and found her purpose. 
Living in the present she arrives,
Ready for a new beginning.

It is good, I really enjoyed it.
Two great lines:

All she had to do was breathe.
She inhaled the flames that set her soul on fire.
