Ode to the Sensitive One…

Written by:



To you delicate one who wears 3d glasses in the midst of a sometimes flat thinking world…

Thank you for your depth.

To you aware one who notices the first of spring buried in the cold of winter…

Thank you for your vision.

To you keen one who picks up on the dissonant chords hidden in the simplest of conversations and responds…

Thank you for your compassion.

To you receptive one who receives the joys and sorrows of those who cross your path…

Thank you for your empathy.

To you complex one who moves throughout life often misunderstood…

Thank you for your courage.

To you highly sensitive person

Thank you for your words, your tears, your creativity, your uniqueness, your music, your art, your feelings upon your sleeves, your porous heart.

You remind us there is more…there is hope…to look up…to keep going…to be real…to be you.

To you Sensitive one…

Thank you.

Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods.  To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate.  It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled.  Those who are at times described as being a hot mess or having too many issues are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world.  Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in the world.” Anthon St. Maarten
