Put your soul out there and let it be
burned, stabbed, bruised or shattered,
bullied, stolen, crushed, squashed, cracked,
broken, offended, mocked, taken or slapped.
But also colored, embraced and patched,
nurtured, kissed, warmed up, inspired,
cherished, grown, loved, glued and healed.
Be able to give,
Don’t put your soul on a shelf
Without looking at another’s.
This is how we live,
We give parts of ourselves
Because we’ve taken parts of others!
