Hard conversations

When you feel uncomfortable

Because of a history shared.

Standing up for yourself

Or for someone else

Makes you feel like falling over.

Fear creeps along the back of your skull

Because unknown reactions

Have been the previous norms.

Still it needs to be done.

So you do it.

Crawling under your blanket

And crying

comes after they are gone.
