“Hiding from Yourself” By Kym Erickson

Hiding from self

My mask begins to crumble,
It’s a frightening time for me,
Exposing my inner self,
I didn’t want others to see.

Unknown to my own true self
Is the pain I’m running from.
A mask there to protect me,
From the horror I’ve become.



Detours on the Road to Freedom

I have walked the path that the words u have written are paved with. At this point in my journey, I have found that in the quest to find myself, I’d find myself lookin back along the path only to find that my memories of my life were being lost in a fog following ever so closely behind me. At this point in the journey I’ve come to find, that the me I set out to find, is simply a parallel of the me I left behind.
