RETREAT


For the longest time I avoided confronting it                  
like my deepest fear. And I was afraid.                           
I spent all my time hiding behind the company of others 
 sure that if I could tire myself out, it would weaken also;
confident that it would not be,                                       
but it was there.                                                            
The day I finally built up courage to face it,                    
though hard to apprehend, it left along with dread.         
                Where I was sure there would be rain, there was only sunlight         
                                                                                                                        I was alone, and well.
