Why you being so hard on yourself?
Don’t you see the whole entire
Race of humanity
-Just like you.
See you aren’t alone
In this vast flood of moving flesh
Hurting souls and weariness.
See you are not alone
But really very much
Together in humanity.
Don’t you know how much you mean
Even when you get it all wrong?
Don’t erase the entire value of you
Just because today was shitty
Or yesterday, or a month of days
You still outshine everything.
Take a bathe in the sunshine
Let your cheeks dress up in a smile
Let your tears water the garden
Let your snores stir up the neighbour.
Don’t you worry hun
You’re just as human as the rest of us
Stop trying to be so brave…
You’re only and wonderfully
My fellow human.
And in my opinion,
(Which I want to you believe
As a grand favour to yourself)
Being a heart-beating human
Makes you pretty great. 🙂
Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤
