Receiving

Receiving 

 Brought up with:
“It is better to give than to receive”

Made numb with
“It’s not there for me”

Fighting pain
of unfull-filled desire:
Giving is so much safer than receiving

Later learning
to open your hands
Experiencing slowly
the joy of fullness

Receiving is giving
Giving is receiving.
