Claustrophobia

Once again, well done Christine! Many of us search for an inner strength, some of us find it, others quit searching…

journeyintopoetry

A bee flies into the kitchen

buzzes frantically, panics,

thrashes against the glass;

outward display of fear

just like the one she

held inside herself for years.

She would berate herself,

pathetic weakness;

now her heart bleeds

compassion for them both.

She softly guides this

frightened soul towards freedom.

It’s okay to admit you’re scared.

    it’s ok to admit you’re scared… that’s strength as well… the bee is a wonderful image that carries the metaphor perfectly
