Song for Myself

Song for Myself
a poem for National Coming Out Day

Jennifer-River

Of myself I sing.
That I should know who I am,
Though I have lain hidden in the dark.

Of myself I sing.
That my lover’s whisper
Should pale beneath mine own to me.

Of myself I sing.
That passion from the well
Of mine own heart drown the thirst I feel.

Of myself I sing.
That I might learn to be
Ally and lover to the beauty which is me.
