Change of Heart

I thought I knew who I was

until I became

the person I am not


Following that twisted path because

I had the audacity to believe a false claim

I thought I knew who I was


It wasn’t until I became adrift, stopping to untie knots,

that I allowed this true reflection to stretch

until I became


the person I am meant to be,

laid bare, liberated from the trappings of

the person I am not
