Stirring poetry. I love the line, "Exchange my dust for golden crown". Good job. Keep writing. Stef.
Beautiful poetry... yes, do write more.
Beautiful, haunting imagery here!

My favorite phrases: "I’m clutching shards Of broken dreams", "The gold I lost – bartered away
By the greedy hands of reckless self?", "I was left, clothed in ashes
A shadow aiming just to fade", and "Encompassing each broken piece
In glowing clouds of healing grace."

This poetry at times seemed free verse, and yet at times rhymed. I'm not a poet, so was this a particular kind of poetry form? Just curious. I appreciated the hope-filled message of your piece.
