Don't Lose Twice

Open yourself
to the pains of life.
To the realities
of our living.

The unspoken words,
hurtful stares,
arrows of the eyes.

Be willing
to bear the shame
of unacceptance.
Regrets of the past,
rebounding in the head.

Inner peace
by loud talking.
No regard
for the quiet soul.
And yet
through it all
keep your heart clear.
Don't lose twice.
