If I Could Reassure Myself Before I Was Like This, Stop My Thoughts At The Root, I Would
It’s okay to cry
Don’t let your mother's poisonous words sting like bug bites
She’s only upset with herself.
It’s okay to scream
Don’t let anyone tell you your excitement annoying
They’re only jealous they don’t have the freedom to express themselves like you.
It’s okay to dream
Don’t let your teacher’s laughter bruise your heart
She only wishes she had your imagination.
It’s okay to be the odd one out
Don’t let the exclusion isolate your soul
It isn’t your fault that you aren’t like them
It’s okay to ask why
Don’t let the exasperated sighs stop you from seeking answers
You can’t be Sherlock until you get to the bottom, after all
It’s okay to forget
Don’t let his vile voice find its way into your rib cage
He was the one who chose to leave
It’s okay to live
Don’t let your learned helplessness persist
You are so young and you have so much to strive for.
So go after it.
