There were those who told you how to live. You listened, then decided on your own path. Those who felt your sensitivity would recognize you. Your tribe, waiting in the great wide world that beckoned. Nothing protected you but street smarts and willing angels.
There were lovers who betrayed you, myopic in their selfishness. There were happy moments, all too fleeting. Courage, you’d say. Courage, courage. You left friendships behind, sheltering your heart. There was always another lover, another place that offered a new beginning. Never home.
Yet in those questions, that pain, that vulnerable space, your heart began to open. All that was left was you.
