Raw

The rush.
The flush.
That inkling,
All those feelings.

Soul shaking.
Heart breaking.
Fear enducing.
Joy producing.

My favorite moments
Lie at the
Extreme ends of the spectrum.

Whether a song,
A picture, A whisper.
A memory,
Or movie.

Just in the heat of it
Raw and unabridged.

Feelings move me.
They teach me.
Stretch me.
Remind me of what it is to live.

Don’t hide.
Bring on the pain,
The suffering,
The pleasure,
The excitement.
Don’t protect me.

It’s my only hope
For resilience,
For tolerance,
For perspective,
For peace.

The highs and lows.
The joys and woes.
It builds the wonder.
It makes me stronger.
