    i do not get the warm embrace
    like some
    do not get the smiling face
    what have i done
    what do i do to feel
    so insecure, unloved and blue

    just at the moment of touching base
    i run
    at the moment when all seems bright
    movement to the sun
    i run
    frightened to take that step
    success
    scared to let love in
    to win
    and so I ride the middle road
    somewhere between up and down
    somewhere between lost and found
    and yet I know
    I know
    I know
    and still
    can't seem to do

    .some inner
    silken cord won't strum
    delicate and vulnerable
    terrified it will break
    on a truthful hum..
    the voice in me says go
    and yet some part screams no
    the voice in me crys this
    i crumble and
    then do that...

    to trust the voice i hear
    not in a moments haste..
    allow its echoing to pierce my ears
    and make me be..the grace
    i know I am
    not what those see in me
    some strong, can do most anything
    kind of being...and yet
    I can...so why
    not trust inside of me

    caring what other people think
    fearing instead of really being true
    to who?
    and so in this quiet moment now
    Ihear the highest power calling me
    inside and out...
    trust in thee
    trust in me
    trust in we
    trust to be....

    When all else fails...you heard what was meant for you to hear, "The higher power"...all other voices after, will be yours
    Wonderful poem, I enjoyed reading it, thanks for letting us step inside.

    To thine own self be true, as I am sure the One above agrees, and encourages. I'm sure most have felt this uncertainty, you brought this so honestly, goodness knows I've been here a time or two. Genuinely brought and received.
