poem-considerations September 20, 2014

Between you and me,

there is respect,

and respect has room

for secrets.

But let there be

no lies

between you and me,

for what lies

between us

is going to be






Another #Outlander poem.

  1. Shawn, I love this so much. I love it’s honesty and it’s sense of hopefulness. It reminds me, in biblical terms of that wonderful passage on “My father’s house has many rooms…” that sense of accepting ourselves, exactly as we are and being accepted exactly as we are, with no need to hide any parts of ourselves.
