"COURAGE IN VULNERABILITY"

Rate: 0 Flag

As adults we think too much.
So afraid to allow others near.
As infants we thrive on touch.
Then we grow up to live in fear.
 
The mind is quite confusing.
It often gets in our way.
And so we stand refusing -
A comfort that would best allay.
 
Don't stand behind your pride.
Stuck locked in your defense -
Why not let others provide?
You don't at your own expense.
 
To be human is to fumble.
We all have made mistakes.
Believe me you won't crumble!
Each of us has the strength it takes.
 
Is a man not a man who sheds a tear?
Is wanting to be held a sign of weakness?
Whose foolish rules are this we adhere?
Expressing oneself is never a sign of meekness!
 
There's courage in vulnerabilty.
Giving up control, the power to let go -
Open yourself up with humility.
Allow your true feelings to show!
