flowers don’t hide their petals when they get sun

how comfortable i am in my own skin

is my choice.

don’t judge how much you see on the outside,

when the inside of me is blossoming.




to sit with yourself

the best way to transition

is to do it with kindness.

to allow yourself time

to accept the change that is occurring inside of you,

to turn your healing into love,

and give it to those who need it.

jumping back into romance

that is not really romance,

is not the answer to your problem, dear.

do not let strangers kiss your lips,

only for you to pull away from the foreign taste of their mouth,

only for you to feel bad about it in the morning.
