It's Okay

I feel guilty for existing.

What do I bring to the table

Other than my emotions?

Some are uncomfortable.

But I feel so strongly

About being truthfully emotional.

I am me and that won’t change.

So one thing I can do

Is channel what I hold inside.

To share what is mine

So maybe others will connect

And accept what they hide.

We should all face our shadows

Without fear of what we’ll

Encounter and recognize.

It’s better to cut it all loose,

Of course at appropriate times.

But sometimes the floodgates

Are not strong enough,

With no care for conditions.

And that’s okay too.
