the sweet and wild rebellion in you…
in those eyes…
those dreamer's eyes
learning to see in the dark.
and all that beautiful madness
tangled in your hair.
toes dangling over the edge,
testing a new universe.
it's ok to take small steps and deep breaths, love…
but also, let yourself start to take up your space.
and don't you dare say you're sorry when you do.
and you'll be rejected for these wings, these fires,
for this sweet and wild rebellion in you.
but these are such. beautiful. things.
so keep choosing you…
because nothing will matter if you reject you.
if it needs you small, don't let it hold you anymore.
don't let anything that needs you
ordinary tame you ever again.
