the voice that scares you

follow the thread
of what scares you
when you rage and storm
and cry endless tears

the pain is a path
to freedom
follow it
into the deepest cavern
of your wounds–
the betrayals
the abandonment
the ridicule
the way you were made
to feel
less than

at the center
lies a gift

breathe

stay

grow quiet
weary

listen

to the only voice
that will save you

listen 
to your truth

looking out from a cave
