underwater

breathing and trying to remain calm through a treacherous era
is similar to not knowing how to swim while in the ocean;

trying to stay afloat
and ultimately withstanding
due to the human’s natural survival instinct

your worth

it’s okay to have feelings
go ahead and complain about mundane things
like Monday mornings or seeing bystanders ignore the homeless
it’s alright if you cry
cry when anxiety hits at midnight
or when reminiscing on past valentines
those are the things we fear the most

but also see your full potential
the vulnerability should not
and never should risk your own self worth
that you are a culmination of
who you want to be and what you love
and your past does not define you
these are the things we hear the least
