Do Not be Afraid to Write

And do Not be Afraid to Not

Do not be afraid to write—

Don’t deny words from possessing your wrists.

Give them permission to kill your loved ones.

Don’t worry if the words won’t come.

Let them marinate in your mind;

It could take years,

Years to make sense—

And if you’ve held onto them long enough,

Let them go.

Bleed them into a journal for nobody else.

If you’re ready—

But if you never are, don’t worry—

Tell them to everyone you see.

They can be stupid or sick—

You do not have to be masterful.

Do not be afraid to write—

And do not be afraid to not.
