One Day*

There’s a poem I haven’t yet written
There’s a poem I do not dare to write
There’s a poem that gnaws at my soul
There’s a poem that keeps me up at night

It’s a poem about my humanity
It’s a poem about how I think, how I feel
It’s a poem about my vulnerability
It’s a poem about how I hurt, how I heal

It’s a poem about when I’ve wronged you
It’s a poem about when I was unkind
It’s a poem about when I was selfish
It’s a poem about when I left you behind

It’s a poem about when I tried to plumb my mind
It’s a poem about when I dropped the plumb
It’s a poem about when I found only darkness
It’s a poem about when my pain left me numb

It’s a poem about how I stared down a well
It’s a poem about how I failed to see
It’s a poem about observing myself in the mirror
It’s a poem about my reflection observing me

One day I’ll gather the courage to be me
One day I’ll show the world who I really am
One day I’ll bare my soul, I’ll be brutally honest
One day I’ll stop living like a total sham
