Change in Vocabulary

I need to change my vocabulary,
remove the apologies & negativities,

peel back the layers of insecurities.
I’ve wrapped myself in them for so long,

years of comfort built in the hiding.
Yet each layer peeled back leads to discoveries,

why certain layers were brought on at all.
He recognizes them, understands them

& slowly eases them away.
I need to stop apologizing for what I’ve become.

It’s not too late for change.
I need to change my vocabulary,

speak a new language,
dress myself in new robes.
