Allow Yourself

Allow yourself to be alive
Allow yourself to thrive
Allow yourself to set the theme for your motion picture
Not yet televised
You deserve it

There is no need for feeling unworthy
You must look at your evidence of perseverance
Of overcoming
Has it done you disservice?

It is the proof in your pudding
The sprinkles in your ice cream
The salt tasting taste of your joyful tears

Allow yourself to express emotion
Devotion
Gratification

Allow yourself to realize and I’ve realized
It’s going to be alright

Pain is
Life is
Love is

But you aren’t if you choose not to live
So what’s going to give
You or your fears
