tough yet tender

17 Jul

sometimes my ways seem tough

unyielding, stern, and filled with a stoic sadness

yet tender are my thoughts and tender

is my touch on those few occasions when

i reach out for you

sometimes i think i can take on the world

but i would take it on with tenderness

acceptance and understanding

other times i find to it hard to do

anything at all

my heart feels wounded at such times

in need of someone tender
