Untitled Poem


I’m sorry if I haven’t been myself lately

Truth is

I’ve been doing for self lately

I’m unlearning years of self-hate

And I’ve even taken you off the pedastal on which you were placed

I’m getting to know me

and I like her

in fact, she’s becoming so much nicer

I guess someone told her it was okay to be authentic

so now she’s living in her truth

without anyone’s permission.
