From where did I get the notion
there's something wrong with emotion?
The human tribe runs on feelings,
and we starve if it's all just dealings.
So I reject staying remote,
I want to connect, want to emote.
Give myself permission to feel,
let myself love, be loved and be real.
A person is not just a book
to open and take a quick look.
Each one is there to be cherished.
Friendship exists to be relished
Look in my eyes, gaze on my face
Give me a hug, a touch, an embrace.
Respond to the chance of affection,
let's take the risk of rejection.
