Telling me how to be happy; how to get along.
I don’t want to whitewash my life; hide the feelings that broil inside.
I want to acknowledge them; explore them, express them!
I want to move through them; make peace with them!
I don’t want to live with blinders; pushing down all that is hard; denying all that is painful.
I want to live fully; eyes open, mind free, heart unguarded.
I want to feel seen and met.
