My Chosen Valentine

Protecting ourselves  
is the natural response    
to a Universe of experience:  
  stories we don’t tell—  
  scars we won’t reveal  
  hidden vulnerabilities  
Choose Love anyway;    
it purges negativity—  
  not that of a judge or critic  
  taking offense at storms  
  blowing back in their face;  
but, from your own heart  
Empty your innermost coffers  
as a gift to others—  
  then refill for yourself  
Balance is the footpath  
  of Universal Love
