Vulnerability-a poem 

Skin.

I’m showing skin

That can be wounded,

Veins that can be drained

Of blood.
Tears.

I’m shedding tears

That can be seen,

Insecurities that can be

Misunderstood.
Bruises.

I’m barring bruises

That are still hurting,

Wounds that can be

Opened.

Thoughts.

I’m sharing thoughts

That can be frightening,

Dreams that can be

Crushed.
Hopes.

I’m sharing hopes

I don’t believe in,

Sometimes Faith I do not

Have.
Fears.

I speak of fears

That have invaded

Anxieties that make me

Drown.

Trust.

This is what I give you

When I bare all that I am.

I’m vulnerable,

Not fragile!

But through his grace

By faith

I stand.
