Internal Dialogue

We all say-

“I love too hard”

“I fell too hard”

“I’m too sensitive”

“Too intense”

“Too emotional”

“Too damaged”

“Too dramatic”

“Too different”

“Too anxious”

“Too timid”

“Too bold”

When what we mean is-

“I am willing to sacrifice for love”

“I believed in them”

“I have a strong intuition”

“I do not hide from emotion”

“I am willing to express emotion”

“I have been hurt, I know how to heal”

“I feel intensely”

“I know who I am”

“I desire safety”

“I dislike too much attention”

“I am not afraid to express myself”

When will we stop feeling “too”,

And start feeling “enough”…?

Gathering

The storm is gathering.

The wind whirls my hair
Into a wild dark tangle,
And I watch a leaf
Dance and swirl…

I can empathize
with that leaf,
Dancing and falling,
Swooping and stumbling,
From the force of something
Greater,
Something more powerful…

I can empathize with the wind,
Screaming and howling,
Pushing and overturning,
Having the charisma and sheer strength
To change the path
Of all in it’s course,
For better or for worse…

The storm is gathering.

New Directive, Same Objective

I enjoy the small things…
Butterflies with tiny wings,
Children playing on swings…

I laugh and smile,
Feel content for a while,
Though comfort is fragile…

I turn towards your blank face,
When will our experiences interlace?
Your cold stare I can’t erase…

I shift my perspective,
Find a new directive,
Love is my objective…
