Too Short

Life is too short 
For talk about the weather
Let’s be light as a feather
And laugh till we snort

Life is too short
To pretend we don’t feel
Let’s dive deep and peel
All the layers, transport

Life is too short 
For stubbornness and shame
Let’s throw out the blame
Through the blackness we’ll sort 

Life is too short 
For small talk and pretend
Be vulnerable, my friend
Offer your whole heart

  1. “Offer your whole heart” This is where so many of us go all wrong. We keep a piece back in case we need to grow a new one. Wonderful poem.
