On Being Known

I use

too many words

I hide

behind those words

I am afraid


Afraid that if I don't use the words

You will misunderstand

I am afraid

That you won't like me

That you won't like

the me

that I want to be


I hate

being afraid

of who I am

Of how you

see me


I want

to be free

To be more

than enough

for me

Prompted by this, this, her, my pastor's sermon, and a thousand other little things.
