Shifting Sands

The dance of a new…shifting sands
Learning is slow…although thought fast
Defensive in misunderstanding
Everything taken personally

Emotions run deep
Worn like a badge
Knowing one should pull back
To control; to balance

Fears creep; no hold they get
The heart has leaped
Too soon; it’s known
Dull ache resides
