I left the bitterness of jealousy behind
Along with all the trinkets collected over time.
Feeling the heaviness grow lighter by the minute,
I took a leap of faith into the abyss
as I silently thanked the heavens above
for the courage to bring me to whatever it is
I’m meant to conquer in this lifetime.
How weighed down we must feel
when one’s own judgment
is guided by society
that knows no more than the next person
but pretends to be an all-knowing prophet.
I have stayed hidden in the shadows
for too long.
The time is now
