The Journey to Accept Yourself – Written Friday 28th May 2021 (Aged 21)

The Journey to Accept Yourself

i feel responsible
because my inner parts
often feel
badly stitched together
i feel catastrophic
about the unevenness
of my wellbeing
and that any calm
feels light years away
i am happy
but i know happy has no –
real distinct outline
happy is just a moment
and not really a state
that is the gap
that depression creates
like an over excited football crowd
just waiting for the moment –
to start
a house of cards
just waiting to fall apart
i raise awareness
not for other causes
just myself –
in the journey to accept yourself
