Because You Care

by Sherry Heyl

I know you care, when you tell me what I don't want to hear. I know you care when you make me face the things I fear. For you good has never been good enough, because you know that I can be great. Although my response has been to fight, flight, and to insist that I am right, you have stood your ground and not let the truth leave our sight. Because you care I have begun to care more about me. Because you care I have begun to listen to who you think I can be.


Sherry Heyl, author of Rejoice in Love, is an idealist in every sense of the word who truly believes in the power of authentic and entertaining writing.

Nice six. Sounds like poetry.

It has the rhythm of slam poetry or rap.

Nicely said. As you make clear, there is knowledge to be gained from the constant pestering received from those we love.
