What if I told you out loud?
All the things that you already know in your heart…all the things that you sense, feel and keep locked inside?
All the things you are afraid to speak for fear that by giving breath to them they may become more real?
Would you honor your own intuition?
What if I told you that you are right about everything?
About having been scared and too stubborn to sit to embrace the truth that lies buried behind the masks that we think disguise us.
Would you love more deeply?
What if I told you that I have too been afraid to trust?
To trust would require courage.
Courage I know we both embody but have yet to fully accept.
Would we be honest?
What if we were?
