Trying so hard to be strong for so long

Never able to speak of how you feel weak

Not up for the task so you just wear the mask

Caging your soul has taken its toll

Teetering delicately on an unsecured hinge

Swallow the feelings in an uncontrolled binge

Clawing from the inside energy needs release

Upsetting the balance of gentle inner peace

Breathing so deep

Eyes closed 

Emulate sleep

Deeper deeper

Connect with the flow

Relax and allow the energy to go

Inhale light 

Glow up inside

Embrace the darkness 

No need to hide

You are only good, just misunderstood…
