The Right Relationships


Being right with someone else

Does that mean, truthful? Does that mean having integrity?

Deep-hearted convictions with your eyes wide open

and there are no dark corners beneath your lips

You speak straight

to the soul

No lies

unless the truth kills

But can you tell everyone your truth?

Do you understand what you hear in your heart?

Too many questions before dawn

become a dream.

Eyes of doubt, shift back and forth,

Days of silence,

Months of tears,

Years of worry,

You are broken

like splintered wood – gashed from an ax.

Can you revert it?

Go back

and surrender the time

to feel and believe that

you are real

and as long as you are human

you must look at another human

like you look at yourself.
