The search for discovering oneself
Is often a long and brutal journey
Opening up the sealed doors of your mind
And exploring your darkest depths
Unleashing the pain of the past
That's been locked up for years
Is a terribly frightening process
Then you must take steps down your chosen path
Often a rarely trodden path
Frequently getting lost and confused
Groping through the darkness
Following the unknown twists and turns
But one day the path becomes visible
And the darkness fades away
You begin to feel the freedom
Of finally being who you really are
The burdens of other people's expectations
Are tossed aside along with the fears
The fears that were holding you back
The responsibility for living your life
Is transferred into your own hands
I'm not sure how I feel about this one but it was inspired by Three Word Wednesday- CCCXIX and NaBloPoMo March 2013's theme of risk. I was thinking about the risk of finding yourself, especially if who you are ends up going against what you've been taught.
