We are hurt when others first meet us
We laughed and smiled never showing our scars
We’ve come to believe in our minds we don’t deserve it
Thinking not of our strengths but a lifetime of flaws

My angel, what baggage do you carry forward?
Whatever you bring is more added weight
When two Souls first get to meet one another
You both don’t show all the problems that are on your plate

When you unpack your baggage you start bleeding
And your heart is locked up in your lonely past
And you wear a fake smile when your loved one approaches
So, they won’t see the shadow your real baggage casts

Broken people try and fix broken people
As we fight to be present in our truth
Then the past creeps in, we can’t leave it alone
And our heart closes as we get lost in the pain of our youth

The truth will correct the errors you have in your mind
Because when two hearts blend as one they will transform
It’s not the battles we lost, or the stories we remember
And it’s sharing each precious moment when you both are reborn

It’s your willingness to look at your Darkness which empowers you to change

Love and hugs


One thought on “REBIRTH

  • I love this. Filled with truth and hope. ๐Ÿ’™
    I remember shielding my heart, and hiding my pain, so I donโ€™t burden their souls.
    I wish I didnโ€™t fake smiles at my loved ones, or try to keep my baggage at home.
    All I do, is wish Iโ€™d have the courage to embrace the past and feel whole.
    Thank you so much for a beautiful poem ๐Ÿ’™
