This New Dawn


 Thoughts unuttered
in our hearts,
painful thoughts
which are a part
of our very being,
must be spoken,
must be heard,
another soul
must hear these words
for us to be free
of their power.

Unspoken, they fester,
and become
an abscess deep,
and one day
into our conscious being
they will seep,
and bring us pain.
