Free Verse: The Truth

It’s hard
To be honest with yourself,
When the truth
Comes from a painful place.

I am unhappy.
I have been
For a very long time.

I have repressed
For so long the things
That I find difficult.

And now that I have
Acknowledged this truth,
I cannot ignore it,
Any longer.

Too long already
It is time,
To be honest with yourself,
And move on.
