I’m still learning to let go
of outcomes
and expectations.

I cannot control
how you see me
interpret my words
or decipher my actions.

After all
we all filter others
through our own perceptions and preconceptions
having already made up our minds
on just about everything
all the time.

And so instead
I promise to let you know
my intentions
and I hope that you can trust me
when I tell you
my naked and vulnerable truth –
the first time.

I hope that you can trust me
enough to know
I mean no harm.
Enough to know
that I too am sometimes stuck and
at a loss for words.

But I promise
to do my best
and I hope you can agree
that my best –
and your best –
is good enough.
