Soul exploration, oh how it I need.
To drive inside and explore the infinite innovation,
The endless power and originality that I contain.
Explore the means of unlocking
The continuous deluge of expression -
Both painful and joyful -
That my eyes see, and my words can share with you.
Because my experience differs from yours,
And yours from mine
Let us sit around a campfire and open our tender hearts
To our human connection
That can cause so much pain from its rejection.
Let my writing open my heart,
So I may drop the studded shield
That I have been holding for so long,
Accept what comes in response
Because with my guard raised
My heart can't feel the joy.
