The art of letting go

there are many things i didn't know about myself that i found out recently
there are all sorts of things i can do
there are many characters alive inside that i didn't know


of concern with what negative things people would think or say
of my own shy, insecure, unsure, 'i can't' nature
i realized that that crap has only held me back
held me back from having fun
from doing what I truly want to do
from enjoying my life
from helping other people to enjoy their life
from allowing people to see me, really see me
so I started.....
looking around.....

and i found

The Lady NightShade of NightShade Theater
A woman of talent and of mystery indeed

A lovable monster named Miss Cheff
don't let her fool you though
she really only wants to make you laugh

A silent film star

and a princess with powers to make monsters go away

Why had I spent so much time looking away from me

when it's all happening inside baby

behind these eyes

is a whole world for me to discover
and to share

i promise to pull the veil aside
and to become all the me's i find inside

take a look around
who do you find inside you?
let her out

A little bit scared to take the next step but not going to run from it anymore. LOVE YOU!
