We Allow These Words to Fly

We allow these words to fly
So that we may feel free
Free from the thoughts that provoke pain
Free from anxiety and free from shame.

We allow these words to fly
So that we may feel enlightened
Empowered by our own words
And how we lace them together

We allow these words to fly
So that we may feel strength
We are able to breathe again
No longer weighed down by our own self pity

I allow these words to fly
So that I can feel like me
My thoughts of depression no longer hold me back
I am me and writing is what allows that.
