In our openness, in our vulnerable hearts

the suffering can escape,

having been chased out by the light.

Yet when we hide, closing ourselves,

seeking shadows instead

the pain only grows

having no where else

to go to.

  1. That’s true in trying to “close ourselves up, seeking shadows instead,the pain just grows”
    I am always encouraged by the way you work with words. I am nominating you for the SUNSHINE BLOGGER’S AWARD… keep shinning 🙂

  2. Yes, so well said. If we give in to the negative it only gets worse. But when we look out for the beauty and the light we lay the ground for something better or at least for giving ourselves the chance for better moments.
