I Am Free

Dear History,

You do not tell my heart what it knows.

I tell my heart what it knows.

I do not compare my story to others.

I do not play into stories of fear, or guilt, or shame.

I do not welcome your pre-made dysfunction into my time

or my space.

I want what I want, and I choose it.

With bravery. And without hesitation.

I have hushed my heart for the last time.

This time, I say: enough.

I am me.

I am free.
