gifts of failure

image host

I'm always leaving somewhere
or someone's leaving me
there's been so much rejection
that sometimes I'm scared to be
the person that I know I am
and not the person that you see


I'm always feeling left behind
or never quite prepared
there's times I need protection
because these things have left me scared
to be the person that I know I am
and not the one you never heard


I'm always running someplace
or burying my head there in the sand
there's been so much dispassion
life has rarely gone as planned
and there's things outside my window
that I just don't understand


I'm always feeling stranded
or constrained by my own grief
there's times I need compassion
because compassion brings relief
and a deeper understanding
of all the things I'd glady leave


I'm always leaving somewhere ...
