I killed me

9-1-1, I'd Like to Report a Murder

On a gloomy, muddy Saturday in March, I killed my insecurities

because they reminded me of false, idyllic authority

and, like swollen rainclouds, the hold they had over me was released.

And instead of continuing to feed my misguided heart to the beast

I Became, blossomed like a lotus, and let my doubts fade into obscurity.
