we don’t know what we’re doing,
but we know that we’re doing it with courage.
we don’t know how we got here,
but we know that we somehow arrived.
they tell us not to cry
because crying is a sign of weakness.
i hope you don’t believe that.
i wish for you to remember
what it means to feel
and what it takes to be brave.
you think i don’t see what you’re going through.
you think i can’t feel your pain.
i just wish i knew how to heal you.
i pray that i can bring you back to life.
that’s all i’ve ever wanted.
