Vulnerability is Strength

This week, it’s the Poet’s Choice. I chose the words STRENGTH & VULNERABLE and to express myself in a DOUBLE ETHEREE.

We

Are not

Always what

We seem to be

Especially when

We are vulnerable

And the side of us we show

Might present the wrong impression

In reality, we’re seeking help

But don’t know quite how to express ourselves

That is when we need to trust that others

Understand more than we think they do

That they’re holding us in their hearts

Being our strength when we can’t

Allowing us our space

Where we know we’re safe

To find some strength

From within

And we

Bloom
