Whatever gets in the way...

#blogElul 20: Dare


So much I've left unsaid.
Not with you -- never with you --

but with everyone else.
If I stop self-censoring

what might I lose?
Who might I hurt?

If I don't express my true heart
haven't I already lost?

I'm participating again this year in #blogElul, an internet-wide carnival of themed posts aimed at waking the heart and soul before the Days of Awe. (Organized by Ima Bima.) Read #blogElul posts via the Elul tag; last year's posts are now available in print and e-book form as See Me: Elul poems.
