Something Has Released in Me

Something has released in me
And suddenly I feel free
To speak the truth unabashedly
Open and flowing
I was protecting you
At the expense of me
But suddenly it feels easy
To share my story
Release it to the Universe
So that it morphs into
Something beautiful and positive
Maybe my music brought me here
After all “singing is praying twice”
And maybe sometimes
It just takes 35 years
Of deep and intensive work
To walk free
Released both inside and out
From the shackles of
Mental illness and abusive parenting
