Living My Truth
By: Linda A. Long

Feeling
Exposed
Vulnerable
Revealing one’s soul
Isn’t easy
It’s like
Standing on
The edge of a cliff
You can
Fall either way
Fall into safety
Or fall into
Despair
Living
In denial
Or shadowing
One’s true heart
Isn’t what
The soul’s
Higher purpose
Is
The soul evolves
In moments
Of unedited
Honesty
Willingly
Seeing
Who is standing
On the other side
Of the mirror
And saying
Yes
This is me
This is what I feel
This is my truth
Knowing it
And proclaiming it
Are different energies
You can know it
And still keep it a secret
But, once you proclaim it
You truly own it
Once you proclaim it
You live your truth
I write
My truth
First timid
Now secure
It’s my truth
It’s who I am
It’s how
I feel
I would rather
Be exposed
Than afraid
I’m ok with
Being vulnerable
Open
Exposed
Vulnerable
Living
And
Writing
My truth
