My Buried Treasure (Title)

I unearthed something

I knew I had it before

But it got buried Under years and years

Of telling myself that the word strength

Wasn’t in my vocabulary

Speaking up created

A mess

That would spill out And touch every person I talked to

I submerged my hands in the dirt

All the way up to my elbows

I clutched those years

Pulled them from the ground

And threw them behind me

I dug

Until I discovered what I needed

(It wasn't something I could find in a friend)

(It wasn't something I could find in an significant other)

It was the thing that people barely heard or listened to

Timid and weak

Shaky and quiet

I found it

Now I need to remember

How to use it
