Open To That Shame
The lines of shame are small and narrow.
They create an island inside life surrounding you in isolation.
Open to that shame.
Take a boat and sail to the big land.
Where you get a sense of others who are just like you.
Something was broken. Your trust, hopes or your context of belonging.
Something was wounded. Your love, the sense that life had or your aspirations.
Shame came in and tried simply to fix things.
Glued the separate pieces no matter how.
Get yourself back on your feet by leaving behind the question marks.
Did you notice that shame always stands
at the core of who you are,
always pointing to these places that make you - you.
It coloured these spots in black and white.
So take your colours and your brushes
start painting those places in new colours
All shame wants is for you to come close
to those isolated chunks
those grey painted hearts
