Never Born

How easy it has become
to turn away from pain
to set my face as stone!

I have kept all my pain inside
I have held back all the tears
that wanted to be cried.

I have not given myself
any space in which to cry,
given up, wanted to die.

But now I am releasing
all that I have been holding,
inside my heart and spine.

Because if there is no release
physical issues will manifest
and there will never be peace.

So today I give myself all
the space I need to mourn
every dream never born.
