"To Thine Own Self Be True"

To withhold our true self from the world
is to cast aside the only gift we have.

This world fumbles and shrieks and cracks
from the burden of lives left unlived,
people left unloved,
thoughts left unexpressed,
joys left unexperienced.

A life lived in fear of rejection, turmoil,
judgment, or misunderstanding can lead
only to a hollow, bitter end.

We kill ourselves with every suppression.
