They are

there is no better feeling

then being with

the ones who make me smile

by just being alive

the way they know who i am

and embrace that

no matter what the world says

they are my cousins

parents

aunts

family friends

they have watched me grow up

clapped when they heard

i had finally learned how to walk

finally biked without being afraid

finally finished a chapter book

they held me up

when i was falling apart

they are my joy

my comfort

my safe space

when my world feels like its ripping

at the seams.

  • Deny

    Even when you deny that you ever broke me

     

    Just come see me at night and watch the tears streaming down my cheeks

    Just listen to my heart slowly when your with her

    Just see my eyes fill with questions 

  • Me

    Always putting others before myself, I don't know why, it's just something I do too much and too often

    Maybe I am enough, just the way I am, if I look a little deeper than just what others say they see
