KEEP IT REAL


24 April, 2019

‘Keep it real, Let it come from the heart’

Lay the hard words and conflict down

to the ears that need the hearing

~

Lead with the chalice of your heart 

Make kindness the way 

of uncomfortable truths

~

Even in the stun of betrayal 

What needs saying must get said

There is not a way around some hurts 

~

They come with an unexpected pierce

In the why would you confront That

In the who made you the righteous one

~

Coming at it from the backdoor

Makes no comfort for the giver or receiver

Not even a gentle knock at the front door

~

Gives ease to what rises to be said

Trust leaves the Doors open for entrance

The ‘real’ might lock the door for awhile

~

Action gives consequences

To the heart of it in the lay down

In the need for what needs saying

~

Keep it real, Let it come from the Heart

Doubt will not be your friend

Lead with Love.

  1. This is such a beautiful, powerful poem, Jeanne. These are themes many of us are contemplating these days. You have packaged such important “right actions” into a thoughtful, inspiring read.

    Thank you,

    Linda
