Go Away

When anger. shame, fear, or whatever takes over finding the right words feels impossible. This will often cause a long, painful silence. I don’t know for everyone but for me there are words in my head but they just never make it out. That frustration is one of the worst parts. Knowing you need to say something but completely unable to.

Go away but never leave
I yell out when I want to run
You crawl inside to find safety
We sit in silence but never leave

Go away but not far
I say though never utter
You seem to know to stay
We stay connected but not far

Go away but stay open
I want to say what’s inside
You know without a word
We love forever and stay open

Matthew has been studying emotions and emotional intelligence since 2010. It was about this time he started to question his own ideas of self, beliefs, and “truth”. During this “search” he came across a book by Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thích Nhất Hạnh. That was the insight that was needed. The ideas and philosophy that were shared in that book led to a need to know more.
