This love in me is not


or a rapid, powerful river.

It is subtle like a raindrop,

simply there, harboring.

Still and controlled.


It’s sincere and unbound and vast.

An ocean waiting.

You Reading This

You were born to live

a wildly special life,

despite the impulse to cave,

despite the terrible love you’ll have to fight for,

despite the lie that you don’t deserve the same.


You reading this, deserve it all:

the love and joy you want to give and receive.

So keep your head up, smile,

and know with absolute certainty

it will all be worth it.
