Nov 12-13th is "To Write Love on Her Arms Day" a few days dedicated to those suffering from depression. So this poem goes out to all those bleeding hearts that need warmth...friendship, love, someone to hear them and to know that they matter.
Love on My Sleeve…T. Jenkins
I’m just trying to be…the kind of woman that wears LOVE on her sleeve
Takes her heart out willingly
Gives it some air…lets it breathe
Opens it up and allows it to be
The kind of design that can leave
Visual impressions on souls that bleed
I want to stitch my heart on leather jackets that keep souls warm on long winter rides
You know that kind of life that feels like your climbing mountains and crossing rivers but will never get to the other side
And its cold
And the bike is wobbling
And you feel unsteady
You're on this journey and no one even taught you how to ride
You are barely- hanging -on
And all you have to keep you going is the comfort of something warm
So let me be that material that can take a brick chill and turn it into something cozy
Im ready to deal with hard and complicated
Ready to be a love that’s not easy
That’s not simple
Im ready to be pricked by the needle, to pick up the thimble
And be the thread that stitches patterns of your life into a coat-of-armor
To cover you…to help you keep riding until a new day breaks
I want to create
a brand name for that love called the “Dawn of Carin'
For those like me, who still hope and believe in the power of love and are refreshingly naïve
Enuff to wear it on our sleeves..

A lens is an object used to form images...a lens helps us to see something more clearly. Every experience, issue, or topic in life can be interpreted differently depending on the lens (perspective, background experiences) of the person facing the situation. This blog represents my critical thoughts on various topics...told from my lens on life.
