I Found Me - Poem by Patricia Clarke
I found me,
I have given up all the fear and uncertainties
to reveal a glowing me.
For long, I cried way down deep,
Dying to birth that which was hidden inside of me
but the fear of rejection crippled me.
I was stuck, though the whole world was open in front of me,
The days, months, and years hover over me choking me,
Soon I was fighting to keep a tiny glimmer of hope alive in me.
Then one day I awoke and I could not breathe,
The glimmer of hope I could no longer see.
Suddenly, my fear of darkness replaces the fear of rejection that had long held on to me.
That fear pushed me,
Towards the light that was moving away from me.
THEN - - - I COULD SEE. I WAS FREE.
No longer am I afraid if the world rejects me,
I birth what was hiding inside of me,
Now I am free, free to let the world see me.
Free to be me.
