The Mirror of My Words

I am no one

I have no credentials authorizing my words

To unleash like a torrent

Waterfalls cascading powerfully forth

And yet they do

Unapologetically raw

Authoritative

Demanding you attend to them

 

Others who read them

Feel the pressure of a mirror

Being pushed forth

To deny

To create distance

Severe the familiarity

They label me and my truth

With whichever adjective suits their convictions

Brave, Depressed, Raw, Talented

They surmise my current status from my words

Because it is easier than peering into

The mirror of relating to my truths

And seeing themselves

 

Yet the words still pour forth

Unaffected

My words unleash me

Free me

Wash me clean

I am anew
