Share Your Truth
Updated: Oct 9, 2019
If my words, if my truth,
if my pain that you caused hurts you back— now that I have power of my own,
you deserve it.
I don’t know what pain you are harboring
inside that is causing you to lash out, but don’t pout
because I am sending my truth
into the vastness.
I don’t want to lash out at the ones I love because of repressed emotions.
I am done bending my truth to fit inside yours when you don’t even know what your truth is.
Free your truth--
send it out into the darkness
and watch as your chest
turns from hollow to solid.
This is my truth.
It is not yours. I will not bend it,
or meld it into something other than what it is
to protect your precious feelings.
For all I know your feelings will be hurt for the rest of time.
