Free To Overcome

Free to Overcome

Out of control, in order to hide the real me, exposing what I want you to see.

Now after 30 long years, finally, I am overcoming my long-held fears. So much time, so many years lost. Never really cared or considered the cost.

The truth hidden in favor of lies. Given chance after chance and numerous tries. Been through juvenile. Kept myself constantly lost in denial. To not be yourself, to keep it secret through lies. Seems to be the way a person's spirit dies.

Now I got 10 years in the pen and it took almost eight of those ten years to sink in. What I truly need is a new life. So I can be someone's man and have a loving wife.

SO now to educate myself and learn from my past, and truly be true to myself and free at last. If you now ask me where I will be in five years, I would say completely over my darkest fears. And I would also say: black, smart and soulful.

No longer scared of falling apart.

That's how I define overcoming life with no more struggle and no more strife.
