I used to wear a veil,
that I cast over myself like a shadow.
Then I stripped myself bare.
I freed myself and still I was not free.

When you start to take away the pain, you find even more pain inside.
You have to be brave,
you have to be kind to those parts. The parts you don’t like.
You have to wrap your arms around them and hug your pain so tight.
Just like you would a lover.
Those fragile parts of you, are so beautiful.
Just like a flower all ready to bloom.
It needs your light first, it needs your embrace.
It needs to know it belongs, before you can set it free.
