brave enough to handle my tangled life

and jump in with both feet

amid the confusion and chaos

to say “I’m here.”

using laughter to fight tears and

build a foundation that

emboldens my vulnerability

See me

through the past and the pain

beyond the facade that keeps the world at bay.

Show me that tightropes and wild rides

are exciting with friends you treasure.

Use gentle persuasion to shift my position

Warm the bed with confidence not arrogance.

Quiet my storms of devalued self-image.

Show strength with your weakness

but don’t take advantage

apart from the crowd of conformity

wandering together

through confused understanding

a raw, frayed safety that holds the pieces together

when the noise gets too real
