I like being better.
It feels soft.
The edges are curved
and I glide,
I do not run.
It’s like the world is less harsh.
I no longer feel
like a serrated knife.
Walking around aimlessly.
Everyday afraid, of
the next person
I will obliterate.

I no longer fear
the words people say.
They do not matter.
Because I know I am better.
Not the very best,
but better than how I was.

A yes or a no, no longer
sends my head spinning
Because I’ve grown
quite fond of maybe.
It’s soft.
Just as I am soft,
And it feels right.
In the same way
a nice bowl of oatmeal
feels warm in the morning.

Embracing the sunlight,
too feels warm.
My glassy eyes were
transformed with tears.
I thought I would never stop.
They said crying is healing,
I spat at their lies.
Disgusted by
my vulnerability.

I used to be a piece of glass.
People watched me
from a distance.
Always afraid to get too close
because I would shatter.
But I realize my tears
have washed away
much more than
just mascara.
I learned to feel.

The phrase
‘It’s a healing process’
used to sound
like a death sentence.
But now I see that
it’s just them
saying to be patient.
The virtue I am learning.
I was told to take refuge
in thought that life
is gradual.
I didn’t think it
would ever come.
But it did.

When each day
is not as hard
as the last, I know
that I am no longer
a serrated knife.
I am becoming soft.

Healing is a journey.

Maybe
better for me
doesn’t have to mean
completely sane.
Maybe it’s,
“just a little off my hinges,”
versus, “completely fucked up”
and that’s okay.

so apparently people talk to their pets in baby voices, but when i see my cat i’m just like ‘hey brad’ and he’s like ‘meow’ and the conversation is over.

I don’t know why but for some reason the fact that your cat’s name is brad is hilarious to me

People who shame young mothers suck. Just because YOU at 20 don’t want to give up partying and your ‘life’ doesn’t mean every other 20 year old wants to be a drunk with no meaning to their life. Get over your fucking self. My child didn’t ruin my life, she gave it meaning.

Amen
