Would anyone mind reading a poem I wrote?

It was gonna be for my therapist. I was gonna get it etched in glass for her upcoming b-day, but since she's no longer my therapist, I'm kinda stuck with it. I find it cathartic to write it out here, if someone would like to listen...

I'm also willing to read it. Glad to hear she's no longer your therapist.

I wrote it in another thread (this was a duplicate one). My bad, lol.

 

She ran after her dream with reckless abandon, a woman purely engulfed in fire.
She took no prisoners, had no fear, and ran after whatever she desired.

This woman, intent on leading, pursued a dream that she had held dear,
but little did she know, all that she ever wanted was so very near.

She blazed a trail to victory, amassing large sums of recognition and wealth.
She carved herself a physique of her own, on her way to perfect health.

She made herself a name and always stood out in a crowd,
her loved ones reveled in her success and she made them very proud.

And as she accomplished her goals and amassed many triumphs, she saw a finish line much closer in view...
so she reminisced on all her successes and realized that now, they were much different than she once knew.

See, it wasn't the money, the fame, the accolades or even a certain prize...
it was the human connections that she had forged which had made her feel alive.

It was that her very being was embedded in the hearts of the souls she had touched,
people who also held her very dear and valued her very much.

These people would look back, too, and think of her as well,
and when they did, they thought of her so fondly, their hearts began to swell.

Her greatest achievements were those lives she had impacted and the memory rested in their mutual hearts,
connections that even though may have been dormant, were never truly too far apart.

This woman, intent on leading, never had to run too far or overly pursue...
all that she wanted was in her from the start, and now a little is in me, because of you.

That's powerfully inspiring. Now I want to go make the world a better place. Normally near rhymes annoy but I feel like here they almost fit with the theme, forging ahead to create something beautiful even if it's not technically perfect.
