Thank You

I don’t know what’s going on
or what’s going to happen,
but I want to say Thank you.
Thank you for walking with me,
allowing me to go from one emotion
to the next and not abandoning me.
I think I – we, as humans – put
unnecessary pressures on ourselves
to live this ideal
in order to be accepted in the world.
When all we really need to do is
accept ourselves.
It’s a journey I’m on
accepting myself.
And it ain’t an easy one.
But Thank you for being there
and allowing me to go at my own pace.
You know how to be there when I need you
and give me the freedom to be me
at the same time.
How do you do that?
I’ve left you, I’ve abandoned you
And you’re still here.
You’ve seen the pretty and the ugly,
the light and the dark
And you’re still here.
Thank you.
Thank you.
Thank you for that
kind of love.
