stop it. stop hiding that fragile part of you
the part you think no one could ever love
oh my dear,
that is your most lovable part of all.
pull up the sheets, pull open the tattered seams
let your mask fall away and dissolve into stale thin air
let your naked heart ooze out
like a fresh ruby sea.
there is no point
and invest so many hours in hiding who we really are
that’s just dying a slow-motion death
freezing our fiery souls to wither and decay
into vapid, yet subtle tones of winter-like misery.
do the braver thing…
step into the epic bloomin’ springtime of your soul.
be ignited. be vivified. be weird as hell. be excited. be sad. be brilliantly YOU.
dance in the totality of every fractured part of your soul—
step into the full vibrance of who you truly are
your vulnerability is f*cking gorgeous
don’t hide it
do the braver thing,
don’t hide, at all—
take the risk
take the plunge
to be you
all of you
every godddamn gorgeous
and see how life
