There are some things that must be done first
A door must be opened to enter a house
A curtain drawn to see the view
Socks before shoes
Underwear before pants (usually),
You gotta crack the egg at some point
You have to peel the banana before you eat it.
Sometimes the conversations we are really hoping to have
Are not sitting on the surface
Ready on the lips
Waiting to be spoken.
Sometimes you really gotta ask good questions
Getting past the initial awkwardness
And pressing through to the heart.
It helps to expect things to take a while
To wait a bit for the good stuff.
Delays are expected.
It’s not a magic trick
It usually doesn’t just “happen”
Good convos take effort,
Expect to have to peel the banana
