Into the Light

Where do I go from here?
How do I put the pieces back together?
Even as I write this, I know the answer
The pieces are all there
They always have been
I went to see the Wizard
And he gave me a token
To represent my feelings
That I never lost
What I did lose
Was my ability to be
Vulnerable
Raw
Open
Too much pain, rejection, powerlessness
I created a prickly force field around me
To keep me safe
To keep me distant
But it has only brought sadness
And more pain
As an empowered woman
I reclaim my Freedom
Freedom to be vulnerable
To be real
To let people in
Today, I walk out into the Light
