Self-Loathing

Self-loathing secrets, fighting so hard against their name.

Locked away, they yearn to be released. They wail against the walls, louder and louder until they are heard.

Rarely are they content to sit, quiet, reserved. To linger in the recesses like  meandering ghosts, unseen, unheard, unknown but for the occasional shiver of unease.

Secrets hate their very nature. They rebel against it. Imprisoned, they’ll scream through the bars until their voices join yours and they leap to freedom.

  1. Christine, this is so powerful and moving and TRUE. Every word used here is needed – not one of them is wasted space.

    “Secrets hate their very nature. They rebel against it. Imprisoned, they’ll scream through the bars until their voices join yours and they leap to freedom.” This was my favorite part, for it is so true, especially for those secrets that wound and scar someone for years, until the secret is finally released.As one who was forced to keep a terrible, painful secret for most of my life, I found these final two sentences to be not only truthful, but hope filled.

    God bless you for sharing this powerful message!
