WE DANCED IN THE SHADOWS
The shadows of the darkest of nights
Hello and a short introduction of myself
I am a poetry writer, International Poetry Judge and first and foremost a 21st Poet
Love this -
It has inspired me now to echo back a fresh piece of my own...
OUR LOVING SHELL
Please do not struggle so much with this shell -
It is indeed here to cover us under its wings
to define us as different than our background
to allow us not to be fully swept away
so that we are able to conceive what we are.
It is only when we sufficiently grow up inside
so that our parts are more self integrated
and we better know who we are
that we are able to go out a bit from this shell
and share what we have gained inside
with the outer world.
May we be well shielded
while we set up our fragile inward flame
and may this shield be removed
when we grow to set a fire
in the heart of others.
We first need to know who we are
so that we are able to let go of ourselves.
