Be patient with me by Sonya McKinzie

I need to remember this

Sometimes I feel inadequate

For years my heart has gone untouched

My spirit has been unsettled

Incapable of love

Apprehensive

About allowing my heart to love

Be patient with me

Walls

Barriers

Separate you from my heart

And possibilities

For years my heart has gone untouched

Time

Life

Has made me apprehensive

Inadequate

Inadequately

Unsure if the walls and barriers will break down

And let love inside again

Be patient with me
