On forcing vulnerability

It is quite unnatural
For us to share so much of our inner life.
To have a communal space
Where our private musings
Are open for public discourse.
Not every voice needs to be heard
Not every thought said aloud.
We can still be whole
And have secrets.
Discretion is not a vice.
Ultimately part of what makes
Vulnerability so valuable
Is how rare it is.
Don’t force it.
