Where Had I Gone

Where had I gone

That I should have

Worn that hairshirt

In constant self-punishment

How could I have

Drown out other voices

Speaking truth into my life

Deaf but to one

I listened and believed

How could I have lost

A part of myself

Absorbing arrows

One after another

With each more

A bit of myself

Would disappear

In self-loathing

Concealed in a fog of denial

Unable to see all around

Me, that truth until

With a step away

I gain perspective

Revealing the truth

Of who I really am

I have removed

This hairshirt

I stand as a man

Renewed and revived

And proud of who I am

And all I may become
