You Are More

You are more
Than what
People think
Of you

More than
What you are
Complimented for

More than
What you are
Criticized for

More than
What you
Show the

More than
What you

You are
Wonderfully complex

And astoundingly

You are
So very
Much more

Imperfect Is Everyone

To all those
Who are part of
Or maybe even
The cause of


To those with
Strained marriages
Disappointing families
Awkward friendships

To all those
Who are bitter
When others don’t
Care enough
Come around enough
Aren’t enough

And to all those
Who carry guilt over
Not caring enough
Coming round enough
Being enough

To all
The imperfect
Interacting with
The imperfect

Here is the truth

Imperfect is
The best
We’ve got

Imperfect is
The best
We can do

Imperfect is everyone

So just maybe
We can try
To be more generous
With mercy

And just maybe
We can learn
To receive
Mercy given

We can learn
To forgive others
Their imperfections
And to humbly
Our own

Fragile Heart

My fragile heart
Is strong

Able to bear
Whatever weight
Of pain
Is required

Like those candles
At birthdays
That just won’t
Blow out

My heart
Though fragile
May flicker
May dim
May even
Go small
For a time

But will not
Be darkened

If You Don’t Tell Your Story

If you
Don’t tell
Your story


And try
As they might

They just
Won’t get
It right

And the world
Won’t know
The subtle
That make
The story

And the world
Won’t hear
The shake
In your voice
That gives direct
Line of site
To your heart

So gather up
Your courage

And give voice
To your life

And tell
The story
That is yours
