Thoughtful Feelings (2007)

No longer perfect
Expected to be perfect
How do I respond?

No more reacting
Disciplined, thoughtful, precise
Control my feelings

Crossing the threshold
Control everything or naught
Cannot find balance

Fear reprocussion
Express thought not emotion
Feelings are private

    lean on someone's shoulder..and feelings can be for others too.
