Wound so tight,

the core is hidden,

the outside is strong,

no one can penetrate it.

 

Hiding in plain sight,

it is kept close,

no one needs to see it,

it can stay hidden forever.

 

But then it starts to seep through.

Others are noticing,

hiding is no more of an option,

it starts to fight its way through.

 

It has to be acknowledged,

embraced and developed,

crafted to perfection,

allowed to finally breathe.

 

When it opens to its potential,

finally takes its place,

it now takes on a whole new life,

it can be all it is meant to be.

 

Why was it hidden so long?

It doesn't matter.

Now it is where it belongs

in your life - a place of honor.
