Why am I afraid to tell you who I am

When I read this, my heart felt for the me that wrote this in 2019 because I knew what she was going through and I knew how lonely it was for her. Yet at the very same time I read this now through the eyes of me now and my heart is glad that I dont feel this way anymore. That the proverbial bruises on my wrists written here have now healed and are no more. There is nobody trying to keep me in a box and my relationships have been healed. The love that came out of this piece and the healing that it provided was so vital to journey of my self realisation and acceptance.

It’s a beautiful piece, it’s the song my heart sang 2 years ago. It’s a poem written from my soul, and its a catalyst to the healing process that came thereafter.

Enjoy…
