The story that should be told

Why is it that the most authentic story that dwells

Within you is often the hardest to tell


All of us weave stories to make sense

Of the world around us that we experience

We blend the truth with our perception

And this leads to the inception

Of the many stories we conjure

To narrate to the world, that’s how we endure

The many challenges that life throws our way

Allowing us to express what we’d like to say


Sometimes a painful experience is so intense

That speaking of it causes distress immense

There is a story here that remains caged inside

That is the story that should not hide

Behind the veils of judgment or shame

It begs to be told, it burns like a flame

Scorching you from inside as you attempt

To keep it from external ears exempt


The story that is the hardest to articulate

Is the one most authentic, the one you must narrate

For yourself- so that a different perspective you can gain

For the world- so that people understand others’ pain
