I Am . . .

This poem is about exploring my emotions. It was written around the time when I my best friend found out about a secret of mine. I was afraid it would destroy our relationship, but instead, it helped it to flourish into something stronger and deeper than I could have imagined. Back then I had no clue what would come of it. Now I know: there is always hope for the future.

Poem 40 of 365 –

I AM

LOSING,
Letting go
Of the things I didn’t want you to know.

BREAKING,
Falling slow
Into cold water of a new tomorrow.

AFRAID,
Saying no
To what prevents healthy growth.

HOPEFUL,
Even though
I still fear the new tomorrow.

RESOLVED.
Taking hold
Of promises that never grow old.

~ Essie
