Poem: Truth

magnolia love 2
There is no reason to waste
countless hours
and days and months
and years
on regret.

Time cannot heal
wounds that
are self-inflicted.
Mistaken in their analysis.

Flawed logic
that causes me to
see the past as failure.
Instead of what it is—
choices.

The choices made in moments.
The choices that despite
my best intentions
held me back.

Gripped by the fear of moving
forward
I chose instead
to avoid the upsets
that living in truth creates.

But now I stand ready
to cast all the years
behind
and move forward
toward a bright vision
of what can be
when I finally
take the steps to be true
to the all that I am.

So I may become—
all that I may be.
