What's inside that lies?
What truths do you despise?
Be ignited or be gone?
Speak loudly or be withdrawn?
What sparks your soul?
What takes a toll?
What stirs inside you?
Where to do you run? Where do you hide to?
What lights your flame?
What breathes passion through your veins?
What breeds force?
Taking you off expected course
What beam exists within you?
What have you muted to appease a few?
What’s begging to be multiplied?
Instead of ignored or criticized
What kindles in your roots?
What shakes in your boots?
What's begging to be gassed?
What's left unsurpassed?
What are you not showing I ask?
What wants to be spoken?
Revealed for all to see
For all that it is and all its supposed to be
What needs to arise?
What no longer can be disguised?
Will you let it emerge?
Do you follow it, allow, or will you submerge?
As I sit here at a desk
Hearing my own request
Examining my passion, my purpose, my path
Accepting my darkness, my anger, my wrath
Knowing I stand exactly where I should
This will inside me now understood
Accepting these parts of me
Unraveling a process into a journey
Acknowledging all exist, churning within me
Peeling each layer, one by one
Exposing the underbelly, what needs to be done
Instead of denied
Now is the time
To bare all I hold inside.
Uncloaked and set free
The pain spoken instead of complied
Noticing the trigger
The strength and the vigor
Of who I am and how I’ve become
All the choices I’ve made, the things I have done
The time is now to return
To ignite that flame and watch it burn
Knowing every emotion has a power, each gets a turn
My fire illuminating the darkness that has resonated so deep
Using the secrets as kindle, no longer to keep
The embers fanning into an inferno
Admitting the shame, ignoring the ego
The beauty in the destruction now mine to reclaim.
The glow in the illumination, the burning untamed
All the darkness lit that used to engulf me
All these parts, these pieces of me.
Now setting ablaze to arise a different version to be
From ash is born a new me
