National Poetry Month-Broken Open Found Poem

The irony-
Hiding the dark side
Is not really a secret at all.
How can it be?
A laughable admission,
A shadow self,
Unmerciful thoughts,
A longing for something,
Vulnerable, insecure,
In need of connection,
A grave disservice.
The door will open to your secret self-
Face being human.
Great Power, your Open Secret!
Put down burden,
Walk through the open door.

A “found poem” is one that is created using words or phrases that have been selected and rearranged from another text.  In this case, I chose BROKEN OPEN by Elizabeth Lesser.
