To Be Vulnerable

To sit alone and just be sad
Because of covenants undone
To shed hot bitter tears of pain
And know, down deep, you’ve just begun

To feel the gloomy weight of time
A burden that’s beyond belief
To hear the lonely seagull’s cry
Of chances lost, regrets, and grief

To open up old fetid wounds
That never, ever really healed
To let the light come in at last
And shine its truth on what was sealed

O listen well, my golden friends
Emotions, all, to us belong
For sharing them, you are not weak
Contrariwise, you are the strong!

  1. Reminds me of times of loneliness and pain, alone, and wondering where my life was headed. But through friendly relationships, steadily moving towards wholeness and happiness, until the next time.
