My Quiet Mind

Tue, 12/27/2016 - 19:54 -- GabyC

I despise those people who tell me 

"Calm down."

They claim my emotions are too loud...

that I must quiet them.


They tell me to allow myself to be wrapped 

in my own pity, jealousy, anger, and sadness.

They tell me to never reveal to anybody

that I am in fact human.


I hate those type of people because they make me feel ashamed

for feeling, even when there is no real need 

to quiet my emotions.

In fact, I want to live off that feeling.

Live life in an effort just to feel, 

just to feel alive.


That is the one thing nobody will ever regret.

To live life in an effort to feel something.

To take action and just relish in the moments

that make you feel most alive.


I hope that those people that I so much despise, 

finally, realize this

and they allow themselves to be vulnerable

and to feel everything life has to offer them.
