Morning

In the semi woken hours of the morn
I dream of a life left behind
A love thought had then lost
A legacy of feeling to be amputated
cut away
For in loving you
I found only loss of self
not acceptance
not empowerment
not a safe place to fall
You betrayed me
yet the betrayal was somehow my own
I allowed the losing
in order to learn
That which remains unseen
run deep in flesh of soul
hidden in the energy of mind
I know not
I shall not fear truth, though
This I know
I shall not be fearful again
The strength within me has grown,
it seems
and I can endure
I can fight for my life
Hold my head high
and feel no shame
cry no more tears
because my time has come
