To be me 
 Something I have feared 
 Admired others for being
 Locked myself away in a cage 
 Silence quiets anxieties voice 
 To speak is to reveal 
 To be me
 I didn’t know how 
 Same body but different me’s 
 Longing to hear that “me” is alright 
 Yet I remain hidden 
 Shy in a corner of myself 
 Grieving my voice
 To be me 
 Embracing each part 
 To own the past 
 Accept the present 
 And hope for the future 
 To be me 
 Hidden no longer 
 Anxiety silenced by my deafening roar 
 At last 

One thought on “Roar
