SHAME

Don’t hide behind 
That wall of shame
Don’t think that I 
Don’t feel your pain. 

The price of
Vulnerability
A hindering 
Disability.

My armor cracked
And somewhat worn
My heart strings tattered
Weathered. ….. torn.

Bruised and battered
Stripped of my pride
The bare emotions
I feel inside.

Kindred spirits
Wounded souls
The same sad story
Has been told.

Comfort ….. caring
Relatability 
The offer of solace
And sensibility.
