here you are lying

all doubled up with pain

from the wounds they gave

not recognising they said

nothing about

who you are

here you go

seeking the wild

as river of tears run

down your face

feeling the force

of all the unlived life

bursting at the seams

deep within

you turn to greet

your shadow self

along this path of freedom

as you feel the torn threads

all confused and tangled


and begin to mend

it is going to take some time

to move on through

this latest pain

but deep inside you know

how much there is to gain

by just allowing yourself to

feel it

throwing off the shackles

and prohibitions against freeing it

to embrace the self you were always meant to be

emerging now

from deep inside

the shedding husks

setting free

the tender seed of you
