Poem: On Vulnerability

Vulnerability by MW Hardwick 

Rooted in “I am not good enough”

Shame is with us all

dis-connected, numbed and unfeeling

People strong sense of love and belonging –feel they are worthy of



Openness ,


And Joy…

Am I good enough

Worthiness is at center of being awake

whole hearted people have sense of



and Okayness

Okay to be imperfect

OK to be compassionate to self and others

OK to treat ourselves kindly

Want some of this–Be vulnerable…

Let go of who you should be and just be authentic

vulnerability makes you beautiful

not comfortable or painful

willingness to say I love you first, lets have sex

take risks is fundamental to living

Vulnerable is letting go of control because

We maybe rejected, brushed aside or put down

You can’t control or predict

Authenticity is at the center of Joy, creativity of belonging or love


Struggle with vulnerability makes you real

Numb vulnerability at your own risk,  at your risk —

to addictions, being fearful, tough guy, no feelings just numb self —

I don’t want to numb hard feelings without numbness you can experience…

joy. gratitude. happiness.

Vulnerability makes sense of our past,

Brings peace for today,

Creates a vision for tomorrow.

Be vulnerable…enrich you life.

Unlock the fullness of living…Just Be Vulnerable
