my head has been swimming with lyrics all day.
How timely that I have been writing again… I think without this expression I would be ill with anger and angst.
I processed a lot today… and these words came together…
Promise kept to myself,
to my soul.
Perish the fire with cool restraint,
Exchange the anger for freedom.
No more affirming nods,
or quiet acceptance.
No more ignoring the pleas- the screams-
from inside my gut.
No more moral turmoil,
or twisted rationalizations.
No more seeking outward for a defender,
that title is for me to hold.
