This is a poem I wrote one day
I realized that it was ok
to just feel what I felt for that day.
To accept that I didn’t have to “pretend’
that all was fine and that the world
didn’t come to an end
and my word was still actually alright.
I discovered that bit of compassion for myself,
and just allowed that day to just be what it was,
to just go with the flow with an understanding
that tomorrow was another day,
with new choices, new feelings,
and a clearer understanding of me.
