Things Inside

Yes we all carry so many things inside…
There are things that we freely reveal,
And there are things that we try to hide.

Things that are shallow and things that are deep…
Things that we desperately need to let go of,
And things that we desperately need to keep.

Yes we all carry so many things inside…

Things like sorrow and things like pain…
Things that tend to weigh us down,
And things that tend to make us feel ashamed.

Unspeakably bad things like despair…
Things like the ugliness of prideful indifference,
When we see a need but we just don’t care.

Yes we all carry so many things inside…

Good things like love and compassion,
Mercy and grace…
The ability to forgive and forget,
Not only others, but our own personal mistakes.

This is me and this is you,
The good, the bad and the ugly things,
We all have to struggle through.

Whether it be love or compassion,
Despair or pride…
These are just a few of the many things,
We all carry inside!

Artist's Description

This was inspired by “from the darkest place back into the light” A journal entry by Liesbeth. She has courageously shared some of her life struggles much to the benefit of others. And I believe much to her own benefit, as I’m a firm believer in the healing power that comes through openly confiding in others. Thank you Liesbeth!
