(2010) Today - Poem by Deana Rode

Today I let myself admit I'm scared
and hide in the corner and cower

Today I let myself feel my hurt
and go into the darkness to be consumed

Today I let myself say I'm in pain
and feel it course fully through me

Today I let myself lower my guard
and cried tears long past due

Today I let myself be myself
and now there's nothing left from it.
