Throw It Away

image

The shame that you wear
like a heavy wool coat
shrouds you in darkness
from your head to your toes.

Someone decided
to project upon you
their own toxicity
judgments untrue.

You are not defined
by the hate of another
be it friend or foe
sister or brother.

Hold your head high
determine your worth
let it not be based
on another one’s dirt.

The shame that you carry
with you today
I say to you
throw it away.
