It’s beyond ripping off the bandage. It’s beyond exposing the wounds I’ve hidden for so long.
It’s even beyond prodding and poking to make them bleed. Today, it is beyond anything I’ve ever felt before.
It’s as if someone has reached right through me and left a giant, gaping hole.
Because, I told another secret yesterday. In those four walls that which was hidden, finally revealed.
More of that poison, expelled.
And I know it’s the way forward, because that poison has festered far too long.
Close to emotional death, my soul felt smothered; I’ve known for a while now, this is the cure.
Pain is the only way to life and the only way to thrive.
