let me be (poem?/rant?)

Let me be. Poem?  Rant? Mantra? Doesn’t matter, you gotta feel your feelings, no matter how others perceive them.  Fuck ’em.

 

let me be

*nods*

i wish I could be normal

i wish I could complain without being told I have so much to be thankful for
i have so much to be resentful about
let me feel this
i spent many years trying to NOT feel
to ignore the pain.
self medication works…
until it doesn’t…
until the pain collects the last straw and breaks your back…

tired of brave faces

sick of being strong
exhausted with fake it til you make it
let
me
be.
I want to cry on the bus
yell at the moon
frown on the train
dismiss strangers
let
me
be
brave faces are cowardly
sometimes being strong is the ultimate exhibition of weakness
and i don’t want to fake shit
just
let
me
be
don’t tell me not to cry
you are not the boss of me
i do what i want
just
let
me
be
