Shame Encountered

Painful reality

Isolating raw nerves

Self sabotaging track

Keep a moat of distance

Another stone in the castle wall

 

I just wanna be like you guys

I wanna blend in

I wanna be the same

But yet again – that’s not the plan

 

It has taken me years to work through

How unique I have been made

And each day I learn new ways

That peculiarly and particular

 

I met a guy today, so hurt

I wanted to reach out and be

Exposed and vulnerable to help

Him rid his overwhelming shame

 

Painful reality

Isolating raw nerves

Self sabotaging track

Keep a moat of distance

Another stone in the castle wall
