Poem: Reach Out

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Reach Out" is a poem about how showing your true feelings for someone is a level of maturity. The fear of being hurt, hiding behind a mask only hurts one in the end.

Taking a chance to reach out to trust someone with your heart is beautiful.

True love can give one a feeling like no other.

"Taking A Chance On Love" by Frank Sinatra

"Reach Out"


He fears being hurt,
hiding behind that placid, unfeeling mask
pretending not to care,
hurting himself in the end.

He needs to reach out
showing his true emotions,
trusting in someone,
letting his heart feel
how beautiful true love can be.

Understanding it's not a sign of weakness
to show true desire for another,
but a sign of strength,
a level of maturity to touch happiness.

Be a hand that reaches out.

Be a smile for those eho have no reason to smile.

Be a light for those who live in darkness.

Show them what it means to truly love.
