change

it’s a strange thing
to suddenly find
oneself
beside a path
like so many before

after other failed searches
it seems a chance discovery
serendipitous
with neither pattern nor cause

at first i am uncertain
is it really me
and am i it

but then a sudden recognition
an acceptance
followed by deep
calm
breaths

the idea is exciting
scary in its newness

a different self
and yet the same

the choice is made
to acknowledge
to see
to be who i am

the choice is made
things have changed
and i return to the path

A poem I wrote a while after coming out – an interesting and generally positive experience all round.
