It's okay to have days like these It's okay to succumb to the pain Feeling the vastness of the darkness Embracing what may feel like madness. It's okay to feel so human, To discard emotional baggage To let wounds heal And to see what can be salvaged. With a tired soul, Tears run freely, My heart heavy as my knees hit the ground I allow myself to be To completely break down. It's okay to let pain flow It's okay to send everything to hell, To collapse, To let go of control. I feel my soul aching for release The shadow demanding to be let out It's rage and sadness caged for too long I need to let it express itself It's not only human to do so It's necessary. As I walk through this fire I feel its flames engulfing me As I try to find my way out Knowing the only chance I got Is to close my eyes and let it guide me. I let it take over my senses It's okay to feel this much pain This confusion, This rage, Breaking down the mental fences From time to time, It's necessary. I lock myself in my room I turn on the music Playing the same fucking song I then lay on my bed As my body shivers I cry like an abandoned child Searching for home Unable to find her way. I cry until my bones hurt I cry until I rage I cry until there are no more tears I cry until there is nothing left to give. Defeated, With my spirit on the ground And my hopes feeling like nothing but shit I feel light as a feather Fragile like a wounded bird. I wrap my arms around me And drift off to the abyss Sweet sleep overtakes me And I am off to bliss. It's ok to sometimes reset It's okay to rise from the rubble Dusting off and pushing forward Refreshed, Renewed, Stronger, Wiser, More complete, As another piece integrates itself. It's okay to feel the ups and downs The shadow and the light It's okay to be human, To feel human, In order to transcend!
