My life has been a journey through the shadows
On occasion a glimmer of light appears
It’s my mind telling me everything is okay
My heart still engulfed by the shadows
You can justify anything in the pursuit of feeling better…not lost…not in the dark
Freedom lies in Truth, especially in being true to yourself
You cannot change the past
You can face the consequences of it with eyes open…seeing the truth,
Challenge it and thrust off the hold it has upon you
It’s the truth that allows you to feel the grip it has on you…really feel it
No longer controled by your mind…no longer being able to deny
the effects it has had on you.
In the face of victory you will flurish, you will find your true self
People will come to know you…really…for the first time
Those that connect with you will be forever in your heart
Those that do not will not falter your spirit…we cannot all have that connection
That is truely okay…for you are content in knowing who you are
You no longer need the mask that you once wore
You cannot be forced to live in the shadows any longer
Truth IS the only way
It is the most important and toughest of battles
With freedom of heart and soul the ultimate prize
I choose not to live in the shadows
I AM scared….
But soon I will be free!
You can live in denile for a long time…some will breathe their last breath living this way
For the lucky…they will realize the truth of the effects of their past…and be able to stop blaming themselves…and live free…as they have deserved the whole time….
