Awakening. (Poetry).


It's as if a veil's been lifted
and my soul is finally gifted
with new purpose and new zeal;
life's taken on a new appeal.

For so long I've been denying
the obvious truth and I've been lying-
to myself
 and to my peers
all these months
 and all these years;
vainly shedding tons of tears
but now I've learned to face my fears.
