I hope you feel at home amongst my words, and I hope you enjoy the important spaces in between them just as much…

Unadorned Honesty

Posted on 26 December 2020 by Iain under Thinking Out Loud

Unadorned Honesty

Naked truth cast in sharp light

Mirrors reflection does not flatter

           Soul is faced with facts, not hopes

                     There is no relief, respite nor excuse

You and your truths are alone

Walk through the flames with your head high

Walk the road you own with vigour in your step

You are never alone… Your shadow is your mimic

Consider yesterday

Engage today

Sculpt tomorrow
