The Unleashing

In our growth, there is an unleashing

Unexpected, from the depths of our personal vaults

A release of emotions stored beneath years of forbearance

Only accessible when we are truly heard and seen.

We may have endured the unthinkable

And still maintained an air of quiet composure

Knowing that to speak of our layers of human experience

Would be to expose our hearts to the probability

Of callousness, dismissiveness, misapprehension,

Receiving judgment instead of gentle understanding

Increasing instead of unleashing our bottled-up pain.

So when you stumble upon a peaceful, safe place

Where your wounds are nurtured instead of aggravated

Where your stories are heard instead of rejected

Then, dear soul, you may experience the unleashing

But do not be afraid,

For when you can safely feel,

You can begin to slowly heal.
