The scales evil answer~
Let down-been here before~
I tried hard-ok I went off track~
Another day-I must work harder~
I want to get rid of this poison~
My body holds onto it~
It's a battle~
To stay with what I know~
Or a chance of happiness~
The change is tempting~
I really do want to do it~
Something's holding me back~
Am I afraid of what the change can do?
The possibilites the change can offer~
Subconscious fear of what the change will mean~
This covering might be a protector to keep danger away~
Am I fighting against the change?
Every layer must come off~
The hidden girl-she's still so scared~
The extra padding it keeps her safe~
Nobody can hurt her the way she is~
If she exposed the hidden girl~
Is it fear of repercussion or of the unknown?
Trust in her judgement~
She;s wiser now~
Not the same scared confused girl from another era~
She's different now~
What will become of the hidden girl?
Trapped for all eternity~
The prison she has built herself~
Demons chased the hidden girl~
But that was way back before~
She can escape the monsters now~
She's all grown up~
Not the hidden girl of yesteryear~
There's nothing to fear~
It could be an adventure~
Seeing the hidden girl~
What does she actually look like?
She stayed hidden for all this time~
The future depends on setting her free~
The layers have served their purpose~
They must go~Of this, I know~
Bit by bit I'll let them go~
I wrote this one this morning when I had a few minutes before getting up for work. I like writing poetry. I have written some good ones and some maybe not as good ones. I began writing poetry when I begun my journey into soul searching.
