Toe To Toe

When I stand toe to toe

Facing you,

I can only be truthful.

Truthful with my expectations

Truthful with my failings

Truthful with joys

Truthful with my faults

Truthful with my humor

Truthful with my anger

Truthful with my quirks

Truthful with my apologies

Truthful with life

Truthful about my dreams

Truthful about sadness

Truthful about love.

Toe to toe,

It’s how I stand with you.
