Emotions Belong To Us

Yes, I understand,
or do I truly so--
the mysteries if inner man,
the depths of human soul?

For I am earthborn and, indeed,
my flesh is may of clay
my insight, tiny as a seed
dispersed the Milky Way.

I understand, or do I,
the vast complexities of man,
whose spirit crushed to even cry,
rejects blood-given vein.

So, speak up, friend, and shout
it matters that you hurt,
emotions come alive in mind,
they spring up from the heart.

Be brave, seek those impulses,
long hidden and denied
stir up your soul's awareness,
with honesty and truth.
