Day 1 – First, To Myself

First, To Myself

Tonight I remembered
I️ don’t need to conquer every fear at once
I can go slow
One at a time

I remembered what it feels like to cry
Not because I am broken
But because I am healing

I remembered to lay down my armor for a moment
To be human
To be kind,
First, to myself.


Week 5 – Things Have Gone Wrong Today

Things Have Gone Wrong Today

Part of me,

Is wishful thinking,

Is reading into the words,

Is beating heart and wondering,

If it’s my fault.


Time and time again,

I can’t keep my heart from bleeding onto my sleeve.


I wonder when I will be enough.
