A little poetry … yes, poetry

We are soft; we are fragile

We wear the shells to protect our hearts and our flesh

But we are endangered still

Hiding behind; they might sneak up on us

If we hide below we risk the footprints of the world

Still we seek safety

We fear; we dread

Avoiding the intimate caress of the sunshine

We shun the intangible braveness of friendship

We hope; we learn

Being naked and eye to eye with fear, we find courage

We connect through compassionate vulnerability

– Me on a spring break friday


inspired by a fabulous researcher/storyteller named Brené Brown
