Today

Today I stand before the world

With my heart and soul bare

No longer will I hide

Due to timidity and fear

I have reached within myself

To find the courage and the strength

To reach past the vulnerabilities

That have kept me locked

within my solitary cage

I stand before you now

Naked to the very core

No more walls, or masks, or hiding

Just the very depths of my soul

This is the me that I’ve kept secret

In fear of your judgment or hate

But you see I have come to realize

What I lose when I keep pushing people away

Yes, I may open myself to the risk

Of being hurt by those who are cruel

But life’s lessons have taught me

It is simply to myself that I must be true

So, today world

I offer to you the depths of the true me

Today I remove the walls and barriers

And allow my heart and soul to be set free
