#poetry -Vulnerability

Better a word shared than not said at all,

better to stretch, to open to give

than to hide in lonely safety.

We weren’t made to solidify,

to grind to an inevitable halt

to fossilise until we are

merely a record of who we were.

The give may burn

but what rises from the ashes

is a life made pure in love

the connective bond

which calls out our humanity

to live another day.

#youtube #poetry This Secret Place

My second attempt at YouTube poetry. I badly need a microphone and its on my Christmas list, but in the meantime subtitles will have to help.

Anyway, I tried something new with this, the first half of the poem i did on the fly as I recorded rather than writing it down. It was an interesting if slightly scary experience.
