Giving myself away


I sometimes wonder
if I give myself away
with each note that I write here

All my vulnerabilities exposed
the weaknesess out there in in the open
my thoughts shared with everyone

The silly moments that I don’t hide
the quirks that I have let known
the vague and strange parts in me

The kind of life that I live
my joys and my sorrows
I string them all into necklaces of words here

Then today I got thinking about this “giving myself away”
maybe it’s all therapeutic for me
I shed a lot of weight from the mind and soul

When I am eighty and hopefully wise
I can look back and smile at a younger me
and say, “Well done, not too many things left unsaid.”
