The Open Door

The Opening Door

Marnie, 1995

When I reveal my weaknesses
Please handle them with care;
Can you accept them with respect
And show me you’re still there?

For I am lonely deep inside,
Unsure of who I am;
Unable to face normal things,
Just doing what I can.

How can I expose my soul?
Tell what I feel inside?
It often creates ridicule,
That’s why I’ve learnt to hide.

Remind me of the little things
That I am valued for,
And gently, please accompany me
Towards the opening door.
