The piece, Olly Olly, was inspired by my muse, Mary Hamer and her journey with the shadow "Unsafe."
There was a time when danger I knew.
We walked hand in hand. We were one, not two.
You helped me be scared, to hide when I needed.
But now I find, in me, You, deeply seated.
I'm grown now and shown now that I am capable.
I am not made of glass. Delicate. Breakable.
I am strong and flexible, no longer a waif.
I will go now, and prove now that I am safe.
So thank you for your service and the Love you have shown,
But you are no longer needed, now that I am grown.
