Vulnerability


Tomorrow is the beginning of National Poetry Writing Month. The challenge is to write a poem a day for all 30 days in April. Anyone up for the challenge? I will be writing daily and I will be posting some of my poems here on the blog. Below is me oiling up my poetic gears. Each time I pick up a pen to write it always feels like something takes control.

Vulnerability
Letting you see the tears that flow from a place of shame and hurt
Vulnerability
Drawing closer to you with each thought and confessing that your well being and bringing you joy makes my world seem more than just all right 
Vulnerability 
Admitting when I'm wrong even when I'd convinced myself that I am never wrong 
Vulnerability 
Allowing you to be there next to me in the moments and places in which I don't even want to be there. 
Vulnerability 
Uncovering the growing pains of learning more about myself
Vulnerability 
Releasing the urge to always be in control and planned
Vulnerability 
Trusting to share my dreams and aspirations 
Vulnerability 
Giving my time and energy 
Vulnerability 
Exposing myself over and over to the possibilities of being embraced or rejected. 
Vulnerability 
Swallowing the mouthful of what point I wanted to make even when no point needed to be made.
Vulnerability 
Accepting help and advice and not just depending on myself
Vulnerability 
Saying a thing in which could make you seem brilliant or completely stupid but saying it anyway
Vulnerability
