I need a place to hide my shame
Or better still, to vanquish all,
For shameful feelings bring the fall.
I seek the magic in my name
That shows, not who I choose to be,
But who I Am when I Am free!
I search for one eternal flame,
The fire of life that is my spark,
Which shines on through the deepest dark.
I trust myself, but not the same.
The person I have been is gone,
Replaced by someone moving on!
I play at life and win the game!
No matter what has come before,
I live in knowing evermore!
I need no place to hide my shame.
No longer mine, it’s blown away
By lighter dawns and brighter days!
