Be Brave. {Poem}

Flickr/UD Misi

Shed your shame

and set it down beside you,

loosen the grip

you hold around

your own throat.

Admit to yourself

how tired you feel,

and find the beauty

in your vulnerability.


There is a soul

inside you, desperate

to break free

from the bonds

you’ve bound yourself.

We are meant

for so much more

than mere humanness.

Do not chain yourself

to this Earth.
