terrified [poem]

image

it’s okay to be scared
don’t listen to the ones who say
you have to grin
and bear it
and be beautifully brave
you are a mosaic
of your own brokenness
and fear
is just the mortar
holding your pieces together
your racing pulse
and sweaty palms
are a natural reaction to all your scars
and you
my sweet baby girl
are terrified but still alive
remember that
