To Begin With

When nothing bad has taken place

And yet somehow you feel it has
Even your grace is
Convinced

Seeking answers
When the answers
Exist somewhere
Already deep inside you

When you don’t share much
But then you share it all
From your heart
Seeking comfort from somewhere
Someone
Who cannot give it
Who does not feel it
Who could not hear it
When they don’t know

You find it
In yourself
You become
Strong

Strength is light
Vulnerability is strength

Persistent disturbing
Preoccupation with
Unreasonable ideas and
Intrusive thoughts
Even in a pure act
Are toxic

Take note
Most folks are intent
Focusing on their own issues

Revoke the shame
Overshare yourself
Unleash yourself
Do not hold back
Say what is in your heart
You

Say what is in your heart

Stretch your soul
Grow
Carefree

Seek emotional support
Outside as well as in
Manage uncertainty
How much do the things
That you’re worried
About hurting you
Matter?

How can the truth
Destroy you?

I’m letting go
Saying everything
Release the geese

If the ones you wanted to be close
Don’t stick around
You’ve found
From what you chose
To say
They might not be here
Anyway

Let time pass
Check back in
And you may find

It never mattered
To begin
With
