A nude heart… the risk to succeed.

20 Feb

I just have the feeling
this revolutionary realization
that I’m going to have to die
before I reach salvation…

& it occurred to me last night
Before I can ever find love for real.
I will have to risk a broken heart…
I will have to be honest about how I feel…

And I realized that this false sense
of control I practice on my life…
is largely holding me back
from becoming everything I might…

If I can truly take a risk at failure
If I can live as if I hold no fears…
Then perhaps I can create a tomorrow,
that is even better than the past years…

I’m not quite ready to do this yet
but this year I shall dedicate fully to
removing my heart’s heavy metal armour,
& entering this jungle with a heart that’s nude.

and without it weighing me down as before,
all my plans, fears, and protection galore…
I can fly higher & farther than i ever have before…
and maybe just maybe find the love im yearning for.

    Loved it!

    I can relate so much to that paragraph. Thanks for sharing!
