choose



Words have escaped
Made a prison break
Of sorts
Fleeing from dark
Into light
Ready for a real start
Striving toward peace
This love and care
Should not need to hide
The words that ran from
Her mind, her mouth barely smiling,
Display the sweet freedom
To be true
Invite and entice
To be who you will be
Show yourself
Be yourself
Love yourself
Enough to receive
The love you deserve

  2. Beautifully written. I love the rhythm of the lines "Show yourself/Be yourself/
    Love yourself"

  3. "Fleeing from dark into light." Powerful words, and then these words - " Invite and entice / To be who you will be." A lovely poem.
