I walked on eggshells the other day,
Someone put them there,
People who tend to take offense
Leave them everywhere.
I didn’t want to break their shells,
Though they were in my way,
Gentle footfalls were my intent,
But CRUNCH they went, anyway!
It’s tricky and risky, emotional biz,
To feel like you can’t say a word,
Because someone, somewhere will
Read and misconstrue
Everything they heard.
So keep dropping eggshells,
If you absolutely must,
Let them fall where they may,
If you are still afraid to trust,
But please don’t leave them on the ground,
There’s bigger stomping feet to pound.
The Elephant in the Living Room?
Yeah, he’s still around!
We can’t fix things we won’t talk about,
We can’t deal with what we deny exists,
So sweep those eggshells up off the carpet,
Invite that elephant to sit,
Lets talk about the hard stuff,
And make some headway, Sis.
