Let Us See That You Are Human

Standard

Don’t try to hide your tender heart
behind the story
that we need you to be a certain way.
When did a steely exterior become
something to admire?
Why do we call those
people “strong”
who are in pain but do not show it?

It takes strength and courage to be vulnerable.

This feeling you have,
this tenderness, this sadness
is what connects you to all of us.
Be brave.
Stay open.
Let us see that you are human too.
We’ll take each other’s hands,
all the light of the world
reflected in each glistening teardrop–
and we’ll celebrate the sadness doorway,
this threshold that leads us to ultimate joy.
