I am not sure the origin of this poem, or who to give credit to, but one of my subscribers, dedicated readers and friend sent this to my by a comment and I wanted to post the poem, for it speaks well.
I am asking for you to be gentle with me,
for I am healing from wounds
that you cannot see…
I carry the wounds deep in my soul
and only by loving (myself, others & God)
will I become whole.
So, if my walls ever seem too high,
please use compassionate words
to ask me why…
For I cannot grow if I hide from pain,
and by me risking being vulnerable
I trust, we will have much to gain.
