Revelation

Location

I'm drowning in the inability to let go

there is no siding to grab

no raft afloat

just me

alone

in this ocean.

as wilson difts away

I scream in desperation,

"I have lost my self control!"

How cold the water feels upon my skin

the chill penetrating my weakness

exposure!

I am ashamed.

I am not who you thought I am.

Or, who you thought I was

I thought I was

I was

I was

I am

I

am

powerless.

I

am

worthless.

I

I

I

can

cannot

seem

to

be

free

from all that which inhibits me.

From that which holds my spirit down

From those who wish to see me drown

From those who wish to see me fail

And watch me scream, and cry, and flail

My self worth diminish before my eyes

My mind to suffer from a world of lies

A world that wishes to hide the truth

That every part of me is beautiful

And every part of me is valuable

And I deserve to have a voice

And I deserve to have a choice

and I deserve to have a chance

to be happy, to dance

Like nothing in this world could get me down

cause I am the queen, and I wear the crown

 

I am someone!

 

I shall let go!

 

And by God,

no one, NO ONE!

Shall

stop

me.
