Written by Arts, Poetry


In the past eighteen years

I have learned that pain is inevitable

There is no escape from the tears

Pain is inevitable and it is okay


It is a thousand times okay

To fall to your knees

Surrounded only by grey

And scream to the heavens


It’s okay to cry

Until your body

Seems to be bled dry

Down to its last five percent


It doesn’t make you weak

If you are still fighting with

Days that are bleak

Filled with demons from your past


And I know sometimes

The hardest thing is breathing

And one day seems to last lifetimes

So if you’re reading this right now


I am proud of you
