All There is to Learn

When I was younger

we frequently butt heads,

as I grew older I realized

it was not because we were different

but because we were so very similar,

your triggers were mine,

the tones which hurt you

would pain me,

when I was hiding an aspect of myself

you sensed something was wrong,

your questioning sparked a storm

until I let you in

soothing my soul,


you sense my emotions

before I have processed them,

you comfort me

as I jump to protect you,

I am learning more of our similarities

seeing myself in you,

you’ve become my best friend

and while we still clash at times

I am learning to humble myself

asking your opinion

out of curiosity and respect

acknowledging all there is

to learn from you
