Can you tell me why?
Terrified of busting through
Being the great one I am destined to be
We believe the lie before the truth
The enemy is one that we root
Champion the darkness over the light
I’m scared of me
Scared of the potential
Afraid to open…
Afraid to let people in
Afraid to be the realest me
I can be
Shatter the mirrors
Bled from the shards
Bandaged my own wombs
Still afraid of what was around that corner.
If not now then when?
Tell me why?
The light makes it hard to run from yourself.
Turn the lamp on.
What are you looking for
Ruffling through that old drawer
The poems are gone.
Only left in you mind.
Recreate and rebuild.
I tripped and fell back at the starting point.
Dust in my eyes
Angst boiling over
Scared of beautiful
Fascinated with the ugliness of the lie
Be scared…but keep going
Break down the walls and paint outside the lines
Grapple with your own truths and rise..
Darkness comes before the light…
Daylight shines before night……
