I know you’re having trouble
breathing right now,
with the weight of the world
and all the things
you think you need to be,
wrestling on top of your chest.
It can all feel so
unbelievably crushing sometimes,
but sad days are good days too.
Lovely girl, we all have sad days,
welcome yours as a chance to be still.
Live them without fear,
with an open heart,
and a sweet silence.
Lighter days are on the horizon.
