Sometimes we are reluctant to share the things we think, write, or create. Sometimes we simply need to let them go.

Let It Go

Turning dreams into words
    
Translating emotions into pictures
         
Breathing life into thoughts

True Art-

Requires strength and understanding
    
Explorations of darkened corners
         
Pressure on tender areas

Finding someone to share it with
    
Who can be trusted
         
Who will understand

Be touched and moved

Showing them the darkened corners
     Letting them know where it hurts
          Releasing it to the world

Trusting in others
    
Who may not understand
          But need to be touched

Bringing light to darkened corners
Soothing pain

Some cannot find the words
     Some have no one to trust
         
A special few can share their thoughts

Turn dreams into words
    Translate emotions into pictures
         Breathe life into thought

Release it to the world
