Best poem read all morning. My coffe mug gathers a mist of my sighs. Pile of paperwork and reports need to be filed on a sunday. Struggle is f*****g real.

Such a great pen! Sometimes when we realize that making friends with the shadow is the only way to clear the dark places, then we begin to see. Love the contemplation and elegant words.

Clever piece and the internal struggle never fails to being out that shadow side...not an easy process of acceptance :)

keeping it real ;) especially men...we never want to show any internal struggles we may be having ... i think just the acknowledgement of our "condition" as humans makes the burdens a little lighter ... nice one... think i will try to take it with me into the day today ... try to be a bit more revealed ;)

What people see and what lays beneath - a wonderful poetic piece of painting with words - in a short poignant write - excellent :-)
