It’s winter so I’m wearing layers
so many layers I feel positively fat
fat helps me to keep warm
warmed by my kind troubled neighbours

neighbours enable me to connect
connection can bring the unexpected
meeting the unexpected I know I’m alive
while I’m alive I can sulk or thrive

if I choose to thrive I must take risks
risks reach beyond my comfort zone
comfort can be a shroud or deep content
contentment enables me to open my heart

an open heart enables better connections
as I peel my layers back in order to share
these people have shown me their real care
hope we can thrive with all our imperfections!
