Patch by Patch

No time to feel our feelings

No time to feel small

To feel weak

To feel fear

To feel sad

To feel hurt

To feel guilt

To feel lonely

To feel angry

No time to acknowledge, listen, accept or express

So in haste

We bottle them all up

We never air them out

We hide ‘em

From others

From ourselves

We toughen up

Patching it up nicely


One day

We can conceal no more

We have no room left at all

To feel happy

To feel love

To feel warm

To feel strong

To feel proud

To feel good

All the botched up repairs

Come undone

It’s time to unravel the facade

Piece by piece

Patch by patch

It’s time to wear all your feelings on your sleeve

It’s time to heal

And find your inner peace




“True healing occurs when I give myself permission to feel whatever feelings live below the triggers.”

Get Well Soon!
