Thanks to Poetry Circle, I was able to get these words out…


Beyond the cage I locked myself in
Beyond the beliefs that strangled my heart
Beyond the circle of people I surrounded myself with
Beyond the lessons that taught me to fear and judge
Beyond the precepts that encouraged me to hide my emotions
Beyond the voices of those who wanted me to fit into their box
Beyond the expectations that were suffocating my soul
Beyond the burdens that led me to a cave of despair

a space of rest
a place of grace
a circle of love

and my God is beyond ecstatic that I threw away that key
