Make me vulnerable and open,
To welcome love and criticism as equal partners,
a listening heart, awakened, bleeding,
forgiving and understanding.
It is not weakness, but strength, and eternal desire.
“I will persevere in the way of integrity;”
Amongst the chaos of a day,
Everyone buzzes, shouts, demands, says
Look at me; I am working hard, harder than you are!
Do I stay humble and work quietly, diligently,
Or call this chaos what it is. Distraction. Noise. Hell on earth.
“I will thank you always for what you have done”
Intense disappointment is a hurtful sword,
It stabs and bleeds and bleeds and stabs,
till you remove the blade and start
healing with love and recompense.
Love is the only cure, which returns the Peace you had.
“let the earth rejoice; let the many isles be glad.”
