Sometimes you just need to sit down and have a conversation with yourself.
A raw, fierce, deeply rooted, knock-down, wild, illuminating,
Merciful, honest talk about who you are.
Beyond the illusion, beyond how you want everyone to see you,
Beyond how you see yourself.
Beyond how you are supposed to be
Or what you didn’t accomplish
Or the myriad number of mistakes you’ve made.
Sometimes you just need to sit down and tell yourself
“The hell with the story I’ve created so I can feel good about myself.”
“The hell with the story I’ve created so others can feel good about me.”
Sometimes that conversation needs so few words.
You just need to feel how alive you are and grateful.
