Akin to Violence



I’ve never been a certain girl
I’ve always been unsure
Often I’m a hide behind the curtain girl
Concealing the unpure

Sometimes I’m a cry it out girl
Can’t seem to hold it in
It’s these times I’m a scream and shout girl
Confessing each and every sin

I’ve never been an illusive girl
I wear my true colors for all to see
Lately, I’ve been a conclusive girl
I’ve heard my future call to me

A voice too loud to silence
A pull too strong to ignore
Intensity akin to violence
Used with which to implore

No longer will I remain suspended
I’m ready to fly free
Possibilities are open-ended
I’m ready to find me
