I Put Myself Up For Sale

I put myself
Up for sale
And then I watched
from far far away

I have held
on to these morals
Oh so very tightly
All of my life

Treating them
like prisoners
Within my
own confines

Today, after so long
One by one, I let them go
Back into the world
Where they came from

Just then,
a wave of insecurities
Drowned me
Within the pain of realization
Then engulfed the rest of me

A bout of freedom
filled up my soul
with something so unsure
I had never felt before
