THE DRAGON OF HINDRANCE

Within me lives a secret.

The secret denies itself
and certainly her consequences.

At a moment of clarity, it wants to reveal its truth
but fear and irrational thought
suffocate the desire.
In order to function
I wear masks.

The secret becomes a dragon
that stops me to be the really me that I am.
While years are passing by the illusion of wellbeing is persisting
in holding on while I and the dragon are drowning slowly
in a pool of insanity.

In order to free myself
I need to admit that I have a secret,
voice it and face the consequences.

The time of liberation presents itself.
Courage is being embraced, quilt and shame are cast off.
Words of truth are finally spoken.
