Secrets Surrendered
Secrets Surrendered

By Bernadette Dunn

Secrets kept in the dark and painful places of memory buried to protect the life of an innocent.
The corpse of a secret putrefies buried untreated and un-grieved.
Pain, rage, and hurt kill self-love and erode self-confidence.
Pain, rage, and hurt cloud the mind and crush the heart.
Pain, rage, and hurt starve love for others and engorge bitterness and judgement.
Pain, rage, and hurt build walls and create islands of isolated persons.
Pain, rage, and hurt promote abuse and foster sadness.
Pain, rage, and hurt record painful stories to be re-lived over and over and over.
LOST, LOST, LOST in the pain, rage, and hurt.
I want to come out of the dark.
I want to live, laugh and love again.
I want to reclaim my innocense.
I want to sing, dance and shout out loud.
I want to be silly, goofy and weird.
I am me.
I surrender to the fact that those stories happened and now IT Is time to move into my fabulous life.
I surrender to living each happy, sad and angry moment of my life fully.
I surrender forgiveness.
I surrender bitterness.
I surrender pain, rage and hurt.
I reclaim my life to live, laugh and love the Many I choose to love.
I release the secret stories chaining my life to the pain, rage, and hurt.
Real life, real laughter and real love are my companions.
I live.
I laugh.
I love.
I surrender.

Love and peace to you all.

Synopsis
Poem about the destructive forces of secret kept and unspoken. They eat away at a persons inner voice. I believe releasing the chains free my soul to experience this fabulous world in a joyous way. This is also about surrendering to being okay no matter what.
