I have lived a life of silence

Solitude coexisting with worry

That I wouldn’t be good enough

That my ability

To be awake

Alert to all my senses

That cause a chaotic wave

Of power and heat

Was seen as too much

Too boastful

I clamped my mouth tight

Holding onto the secrets

Of a life so full of joy

To accommodate those

Who live a life of less

Of those who seek complacency

Instead of the many wonders

Of passion or pain

That fear of not knowing

Creating their own sollitude

But I wish to come forth

Wild and maddened

With all that I feel

All that I know

To love furiously

To dance wildly

To live freely
