exposed

exposed
that’s how it can feel
to create
you start with an idea
it captures you
with the promise of the possible
the hope of change
so you pursue it
alone at first
speaking in whispers
then you share it
with those closest to you
as you do
you see its flaws
the wrinkles
the imperfections
the promise becomes an uncertainty
but you forge on
still captured by its beauty
you hack your way through a sea of emotions
until you set it free
until you let it go
then the idea is born into the present moment
paradox pulls you
strings you up
between beauty and pain
between hope and fear
you can barely stand to look
it’s a nakedness you cannot clothe
will it have any impact?
will it resonate with one person?
exposed
that’s how it can feel
but also
exhilarating
as if the shaking vulnerability
opened up a spring
joy wells up inside your chest
alive
that’s how it can feel
to create
