“Testing the Waters”

I’m back
although people may not’ve noticed me
gone
but I’m back
I think

in a way I shut down
being open about my life
because of advice
because of fear
because of betrayal

but one thing’s for certain
I feel “called” to write
publicly
so when I don’t
I feel out of balance

you’ve missed birthdays
and deaths
trials
and triumphs

so as I stand up strong
with my core intact
I’ll let every word
flow
from my heart and mind

I’m no longer
afraid
to be me

if you don’t want me
to write about you
don’t hurt me
