I see venom in your eyes, I see tension in your fists And I feel your walls erecting. -But I know that you are hurting- I feel condemned by your words, I feel motivation to turn the other way And I see no hope in your being. -But I know that you are hurting- I feel helpless in your presence, I feel judged by your disappointment And I long to make it right for you. -But I know that you are hurting- There are times when the one we love is hurting and the only thing we can do to help is to stand by as they brave their demons. This poem reflects on what helpers are seeing and feeling when they can’t step in and must accept what is. A battle of emotions can always get ugly, but it is in facing it head-on that understanding and inner strength are found.
Open your heart to be wild and free Let go of what was to enjoy what is Explore what opens by spreading your wings Soar through the air and take another plunge Let go of what was to enjoy what is Leave the past in a cloud of dust Soar through the air and take another plunge Capture your prey in the depths of sea Leave the past in a cloud of dust Wander new roads that have been paved Capture your prey in the depths of sea Rise with your prize and pride in your heart Wander new roads that have been paved Enjoy the wonder of abundant blossoms Rise with your prize and pride in your heart The world is ready for your embrace Enjoy the wonder of abundant blossoms Explore what opens by spreading your wings The world is ready for your embrace Open your heart to be wild and free

Venture out, Venture deep Let the darkness, in you, seep. Don't correct, Just respect, Let the strength, from within, speak. Listen hard Be open, Let the truth, to you, shine bright. The dualities created in our perceptions become challenging barriers. Venture away from set-perceptions, try not to correct and just listen. Embrace darkness and light will be found when our strength speaks and the truth shines. Without one, there'd be no other and the whole would be lost due to incompletion.
