Shame

Ah shame
Away with you, for
Error is no chalice
Error is my teacher.

Ah shame
I showed you in, and
My life your home you made
My dignity a mat you trod.

Ah shame
I embraced you, then
Fear in my heart you bred
Fear became my lot.

Ah shame
Your lie I believed, that
To err is to break a limb
To err there never pardon is.

Ah shame
I call you out this day, saying
Draw out my gut if you will
Draw my blood and kill.

Ah shame
I am no longer afraid, so
If death be mine let it be
If healing be mine I will heal.

Ah shame
I am not authentic, then
Let my shame be exposed
Let my folly be seen.

Ah shame
I choose to be real
By exposing my belly
By bringing out my truth.

Ah shame
Away with you, and
Error is no chalice
Error is my teacher.
