submerged…

submerged

when
insanity
has fostered
a drowning attempt
you
finally find
that you can
no longer
hold your breath
and
who you are
erupts
from the depths
of society’s calm waters
your
outstretched arms
casting a rainbow
of emotions
above
the foul waters
of conformity
all the while
you’re
gasping for what
you’ve denied
yourself
all these years
the fresh air
of creativity
and
honest expressions
with open eyes
you see
the true
promised land
