pain and fear are simply all
that we do not love about ourselves
the parts we were taught to reject
in order to be acceptable to others
and sorrow merely tears left unexpressed
the grief - a loss of love we have repressed

if we were to love
even this - what we abhor
the aberration might evolve
in spirit's dance as thoughts revolve
into the unconditional
love beyond subliminal
secrets kept in shadowland
of mind
