what would we share – v3

Before friends, family,
those who know us
or those who might know
at least, at most, a season,
a piece of our story
if we were asked to witness
to share our story,
out truth, the light,
even the moments of darkness
the joy of redemption, of healing,
what part of the darkness, our history,
would we offer, would we share,
even within the sanctuary,
in safety, before family, friends,
how much of the truth, unfiltered,
painful and raw, hidden,
which of the layers, the flesh, the tissue,
which of the masks we wear,
how much of the truth, exposed,
would we speak aloud there
