Original Poem | A Lot of Reasons

hello! i hope you’re smiling right now – if you’re not – do it!!

*smile*

aww, look at you; you look beautiful!

did you not smile? why not? do you have a lot of reasons for why you didn’t? too sad? rough day? rough week? rough year? rough life? we all have a lot of reasons for not being happy, for being angry–with the world, with the people we don’t like, with our closest friends and family. i do, too. that’s something i’m really trying to let go of. because we all make mistakes, and sometimes life doesn’t work out the way we want it to, but that doesn’t mean we can’t forgive, mend, and find a new direction that will make us happy again.

i’ve been struggling with being open with people who have hurt me, and forgiving. but i really do want to. because i love them too much to hold on to the anger, and i love myself too much to be angry.

this is also to all of the people who love me. who have been open with me, too.

“you have a lot of reasons to be angry”

~ but that doesn’t mean you have to be ❤


a lot of reasons

You have a lot of reasons

Not to love,

To be angry,

To hate,

Push away, hide, shove.

But.

Also.

So many more

To let go

And let my heart pour

Out

Into the world

Where it belongs.

To share my story,

To forgive those who’ve made me

angry, sad, or think I’m boring.

They’re people too;

Sometimes we all just don’t have a clue

What we’re doing.

But it’s never too late to to start renewing

All the things we said to each other

Once upon a time,

And again become

Loving.


Thank you so much for reading and have a wonderful rest of your week! 🙂
