Changing old behaviors

As a child,
I began shouldering 
the pain of others
as a way to avoid 
my own feelings.
It took many years
 and a lot of pain
to learn this truth.

But with truth in hand,
 I began walking 
a new path;
path that has led me  
to freedom.

Today, because my wings
aren’t so heavy, 
it has become easier
 for me to fly.
