silence

i have been silent for too long,

crushed under the weight of numbers on paper.

words in a stiff bound spine. thoughts in a noisy mind.

but now it is time.

time to emerge, straight-backed and smiling,

and sift through the sound, the numbers, and paper,

and say for myself, there is more than just this.

that i am stronger than panic and fright, greater than the quivers of my own fragile soul.

it is time to stand, to shout in defiance, that i am better, am happy.

time to step from the shadow of myself and cast light.
