The Pressure

They sit across the table from each other
mute with many unspoken words
longing to break free from silence and share what’s hidden.

Fear of confrontation, hurt, and rejection
hold back the flood gates of
anger, resentment, hurt and pain.

Who will make the first move;
respectfully voicing what’s hidden inside?
Who will let their feelings out, so wounds can heal?

Who will quietly listen, without taking offense,
knowing that healing can come
only after the dam is released?
