Open - Poem by Deborah Cromer

A question arose on what it would take
Revealing strength to new friends we make
New friends, old friends and of course family too
Actions and demeanor in what we say and do

Treating others without judgement day after day
Intregrity and honesty have their own way
Playing part in communication, offering levels of trust
We can create relationships and do what we must

When in person, eye to eye contact plays a part
Giving others a look into our souls and heart
If we present ourselves with confidence and pride
It will attract and bring forth, those who might hide

Come forward, strong and ready, you are so alive
Take steps toward chances took to survive
Trust the one who is honest and will show you the way
Commit to tomorrow, your future can begin today

    I am always open with people, and never lie, . It tends to get me into trouble at times, wearing my heart on my sleeve. My heart gets broken and my soul trampled upon... but I cannot change who I am for anyone. This is a very insightful look at people Deborah, I like this one quite a lot! Good Ink!
    -Kelly.
