Now You Know

Those pages I filled, put ink on paper

Those words I wrote, my heart and my soul

Now you know.

What is hidden, all that is in me

The bitterness, the negativity

Now you know.

The fact remains that I love you so

To look you in the eye as you look in mine

For now you know.

Exposed, I stand

No barriers anymore, no secrets

that you don’t know.



No matter how much you try to run from what you feel, who you really are, you wont be able to avoid the end when you got to face what you were trying to run from. That day will be without doubt the scariest day of your existence, when you finally confront your fears, give vent to your feelings, accept who you are and accept others as they are.
