Being Authentic

You are invited
Though you may not be comfortable,
To look beneath my onion’s tunic
Past the mature band of happiness, strength and coping
That I can, but do not always choose
To present to the world

When you see and feel the immature flower
Of my non-logic, pain and grief
Opened up, shiny and vulnerable, marinated in brine
You might try to fix me, to save me, to rescue me
But fear not: I am just being authentic
And anyway, you cannot fix something that needs to grow

To get a better perspective
Look deep into your own onion
But before you do, think twice
Invite along your Warrior and your Lover
You will need both
To face your own tender heart
