Don't come out for me.

Come out for you.


No need for fanfare or announcements.

No pressure to say it in the right tone

or write it in the right font.


You don't need to tell anyone really.


But trust yourself

to know yourself

and love yourself.

Even that part.


And know I love that part of you, too.
