I am not afraid to show love today
Sometimes I am afraid that if I show my love, my vulnerability, my fear, then I will be in danger. What a sad misunderstanding that is. For only when I show my love can I be truly seen.
Only in letting down my guard can I appear to others in the light of my true self. Only in my softness does my tenderness reveal itself. Only in my defenselessness does my true safety lie. I pray to be a gentler version of myself.
Remove the walls I have constructed around my heart.
Remove the barriers that obstruct my love,
That I might give and receive it.
Remove my fears, that I might dwell in peace
And share my peace with everyone.
