The Tenderness Within

“Tender,” she said again. “Tender is kind and gentle.
It’s also sore, like the skin around an injury.”

(Brenna Yovanoff, The Space Between)

 

Life isn’t always
Effectiveness and achievement
Life isn’t always
Management and effort
Life isn’t always
What others say or do
Life isn’t always
Outside of you
Life is often quiet
Moments of deep inquiry
Life is often raw
Sore around the edges
Life is often clear
When we remember what we value
Life is often sweet
When we connect with
The tenderness within


Love who you are – and stay high with life.
