Pep Talk

It is odd

the reflections sleep gives

our tiny alternate realities

that are so much more real

for just being our own

it is beautiful

the signs we give ourselves

through drowsy contemplations

tired feet and cookies for dinner days

after true work

it is terrifying

contemplating difficult things

on the edge of our dreams

deciding on the carrot

flailing down a path

take joy in the mistakes

do not fear skinned knees

show off the scars to your love

show yourself you mean it
