"Show Off!"

Updated: Aug 23, 2022

You would have to know…

You would have to know about the nights I spent sleeping in my car

You would have to know about the time I was gathering pennies to get gas

You would have to know about holding my dead son in my arms

You would have to know about the rape

You would have to know how I almost died after falling asleep while driving

You would have to know about the secret pregnancy

You would have to know about the suicide attempts

You would have to know about the physical and verbal abuse

You would have to know about the deep self hatred and desire to die to know...

Why I’m grateful for every smile

Why I’m grateful for every penny

Why I’m grateful for my bed

Why I’m grateful for my body in all forms

Why I’m grateful for my soft heart and the love it gives

Why I'm grateful for lazy beach days

Why I'm grateful for my small mighty circle of safety

Why I shine so bright now

Why I laugh so loud now

Why I rest so peacefully now

Why I hug so tightly now

Why I cry so joyfully now

Why I do my best to feel good ONLY

No matter what that looks like

It may not make sense to you…

It doesn’t have to

You would have to know…

the tears I cried brought me here

the pain I endured brought me here

the shame I had to shed brought me here

the love I had to nurture brought me here

SO DAMN RIGHT I"MMA SHOW IT TF OFF!!!!

BYEEEEEEEEE

To cry or not to cry...

I need to cry. I feel the weight of it needing to release. Heavy, ugly heart wrenching sobs need to escape from my body and soul You ever just felt many overwhelming emotions all at once? Frustrated.
