Offering




Offering

(From Brainstorms)

Take this offering

from my heart.

No need to pay me back.

The gift is yours

to receive

without strings attached.

Love is what

I have to give.

This much I know is true.

And if my fear

should stifle me,

‘twould only punish you.

We all wear masks

to shield ourselves

from being broken down.

But when we open

up our hearts,

connection can be found.

So come, my friend,

and take my hand.

There’s no need for confusion.

I’ll be me

and you’ll be you.

The rest is just illusion.
