She hid her feelings all too well.
No one ever knew who she really was.
Accustomed to never revealing the battle within.
Now she’s in too deep,lost in the lies she’s told.
Shame takes the place of all her secrets.
Insecurity resonates;then her silence breaks.
“This is who I am!”,she screams.
“I am not the girl you think I am.”
“This is who I am!”, she screams.
The lies;they fall away.
Insecurities;they fall away, and it’s just me standing here .
“Will you accept me for who I am?” I exclaim.
I no longer choose to hide in shame.
I forgive all the lies I’ve told.
I forgive not showing who I truly am.
And the lies;they fall away.
