What then is shame. It’s a painful feeling that hurts enough when its full force is felt that you want to run away and hide. To disappear from sight, become invisible unseen, apart.
How though do you escape it’s grasp? What can you do to redeem self in eyes of others? What penitent action will be enough for you to be allowed to return? Can you ever be who you are and not hide? Questions today but no ready answers. Seeking forgiveness an art not a science. Being who we are and others accepting it not in my gift. A departure today from upbeat wiki advice today poems to make you think.
Have a good day
