Protected by the
dark, we cling
to blind security.

We’re yellow at
the center
egg whites of our
eyes won’t see.

Living pecks us.
Pecks away.
Peck peck peck pecks
us free.

Imagine our
surprise: the shells
are more fragile
than we.

“Share your weaknesses. Share your hard moments. Share your real side. It’ll either scare away every fake person in your life or it will inspire them to finally let go of that mirage called ‘perfection,’ which will open the doors to the most important relationships you’ll ever be a part of.” – Dan Pearce
