On tough conversations

Tough conversations
Dreaded but needed
Building blocks to what could be
Acknowledging the tension
Confronting what is
and pushing beyond what's seen

Pressing and driving
Near to the edge
End goal firm in mind
The trail is narrow
Rocks to be climbed
Understanding for all to find

Caring so much
That risking it all
Is the only way to play
With it all on the table
And vulnerabilities exposed
There's peace at the end of the day
