the only way I know how

I open up to the world
Showing my vulnerable pieces
Doing this enables me to connect more deeply with others
It brings me closer to them
Gives me a chance to feel and be free
It is a beautiful thing

There were moments in my life when I was deep in the fire
Pushed down into the gutter
My heart torn to shreds
Dark skies covering my world
There were moments I wasn't sure if I would make it

But I always did
The hurt doesn't stop me
The pain that was there doesn't hold me back
I keep pushing forward
Holding my heart in the palm of my hands

I share my most vulnerable pieces
I am not afraid to take a risk
Show my emotions
Feel the world

I stand deeply in the unknown
My past does not dictate my future happiness
I let go
Releasing that which no longer serves me

I raise my head up towards the sun
Wishing for the best
And taking the leap

One may think this is a dangerous way to live
But it is the only way I know how
Risking my heart
Daring to dream
Feeling my way through the world

It is no coincidence that I am up early this morning to receive your beautiful post. I am thrilled to be the first to leave a comment this time. Your post spoke directly to my heart, as it always does. Thank you for being so open, so genuine and so true to the heart. I love the part where you are willing to take risks and let go of what no longer serves you. This is a lesson for all of us to take heed to! Those of us who are lucky to call you friend, and I am blessed to be in that group, are walking inspired from your love and light! Your soul is wide open. Thank you!
Love to you, Donna
