Breaking free…

I used to be blind,

used to think that

the best way to live

was to build myself

a fortress…

 

Keeping others at

arm’s length kept me

from hurting, but I

didn’t know the feeling

of a caress…

 

And I’d rather fail

than spend this

life constantly sparing

myself…

 

It is time to break

free.

Time to live and

not just be.

To get out of my shell,

brightly shining.

To remove this straightjacket,

and spread my wings…
