Why hide the truth
when it’s something I can’t change?
The circumstances aren’t mine to control,
not mine to rearrange.
I thought maybe they’d look down on me
for living the life I’ve been given.
I let my thirst for acceptance
become an unhealthy inhibition.
I’ve gotten my life out there,
let it become known.
I’ve never felt more free,
nor have I ever felt so grown.
