a long time

it can be a hard thing – to love yourself – to look back at your mistakes – not want to change them – it’s not an easy thing to balance – a raging temper and a need for peace – anymore than it’s easy to balance a need for silence with a need for laughter and stories

it can be a hard thing – to appreciate who you are – in all your beautiful flaws – your rusted imperfections that grate on people – that make you speak before you think or leap without looking

it has taken me a long time – to be okay with me – yesterday I was – today I am – maybe tomorrow I will be too
