Drenched in feeling
Filled my thoughts for way too long
“It’s not a big deal,”
“Just stay quiet, keep the peace,
At any cost.”
But who is peaceful…?
It’s a sham, a cover up.
Finally… proded and provoked by reality,
Out fly words clothed in frustration!
There, it’s out!
And the usual follows…
It’s exhausting, but necessary.
Now begins the conversation,
Two reasonable, loving people
Working on coming to terms with differences.
Self examination…Oh God bring the awareness, the change,
The stuff of which relationships grow,
For our good and Your glory!
