Safe Am I

Cloaked and hidden,
enshrouded with fears,
tears locked up,
unknown for years

Body shaking,
beginning to cry,
tears overflowing,
not knowing why

Memories surface,
exposing deep pain,
beginning to feel,
sorrows and shame

Feel the feelings
let them flow,
freely like waves,
then, let them go

Freed, once again
to smile, until
a trigger erupts
another minefield

Will this pain
ever come to an end,
or, will it repeat
again and again?

Knowing I have been
through this before,
I know how to ride
the waves once more.

Courageously, I face the pain,
wave upon wave rolls by,
old, buried feelings pass
once again. Safe am I.
