Learning to speak;
Finding a voice;
Discovering that each
Gets to make the choice
To share or not;
To listen and hear;
To decide who and what
Will be allowed to come near.


Checking inside;
Finding what’s real;
Emotions untied;
More able to feel
Heartbeat and breath;
Wisdom and desire;
Life’s warmth instead of death;
Embracing of passion’s fire.


Awake at last,
From numbing sleep;
Set free from the past
That would try to keep
us bound in chains
Of self doubt and lies;
As healing soothes old pains,
Be free, speak out and arise!
