Learn to be Me

I’ve had to stand up for me

For me strength and independence were at the core

The core of my being screamed out to be saved

Saved by a knight in shinning Armour

Shinning Armour reflects the outside, trapping everything inside

Everything inside dried up and blew off along the way

Along the way I discovered the truth of me

The Truth of me is vulnerable and still mostly remains hidden

Hidden in plain sight my heart beats

My heart beats rise and fall as I learn to be

Learn to be me as I’ve had to Stand
