For years, I didn’t....and....

I built the mighty dam,  
as waters lapped my heels.
I troweled the great wall,
to hide my reveals.

I forged the rivers wide,
to run from what did hurt.
I'd give, but yet I'd hide
my head in choking dirt.

I am a man.  Blessed be they who
cherish me for this.  My hem
does not show, nor does my
soul, unless I pry open the gate to
where my heart lies.  

My cracks lie beneath mortar
that discloses but a smooth surface.
And of this, one's ponder might divulge
the flaw of what is unseen.

Don’t ask me to cry, for I do so...freely.
Nor should you reach out for a hug,
for I am now, as I write.

Compassion is naught, for it lies
within the letter I wrote.
Should arrive soon.

And for goodness sakes, don’t look for
me to tell my indwelling secrets or shames,
for they rest before me now....within my
open palm...

I am learning...it takes time...

Martie,  you haven't seen me in my mirror
lately!!  Yikes!  Thanx dear one...

Gosh Lauren,  you snuck in on me....I am just
a man that is learning self expression,
something that he kept within for a very
long time...and something/one gifted me
with an imagination and a few feelings to
add to the stew....  Thanx...

If "that" gave you "this"...
then there's one large smile
looming on your horizon...

Magnus~
I've always done a lot of internalizing, as great grandmother said it was the way of thoroughbreds~

Sometimes it has worked against me ... and then I sifted through my thoughts, knowing just what to share with others ... and yes, I now know that self-expression you speak of~

one's ponder might divulge
the flaw of what is unseen.'


THIS is a great thought~
