When did you become

Blind to your own value?

Allowing tiny minds

And bitter hearts

To color your truth?

When did you begin

To accept defeat

And project the image

Of fragility,

Handing over your power

To those who only fear it?

When did you lose

Your beautiful voice

That spoke truth and comfort~

Bringing laughter and healing,

Buried by the loud

And painful sounds

Of judgment and ridicule?

When did you give up…

Accepting the gray world

Of those who live in fear?

I recognize you

Beneath these disguises

And it is time to open your eyes

And wake up.
