and after a while, you can’t hide from her anymore
can’t hide from the truth
it’s just staring you in the face
beckoning you to meet it,
take its hand,
because it’s now within reach
it becomes unavoidable.
while the tolerance for my own denial wears thin
what a welcome occasion, though,
this truth has become
today i’m able to reach for it more readily,
meet it halfway,
as i discard the shackles that bind me
to the endless possibilities that exist
only in the confines of my mind.
