Sunrise

oh girl, strong girl
swallow down your hot tea and shards of glass
there is nothing left for you here
that you wont cut your tongue on
so wait away the bitterness for better mornings and
longer nights of sleep

convince yourself you are right with every syllable
every breath
you are the growing golden sunrise that people go to watch
illuminate the world with your brilliance
get out of bed

this doesnt have to be so hard to write
to steady yourself
to cross the river because after all someone
already built the bridge and all you have to do is convince yourself to move
its a matter of small steps and swallowing your pride and
having some conviction

its about stopping the stream of apologies from your vulnerable mouth
like youre bleeding and you cant stop it you feel dumb and crazy
but girl,
swallow down your feelings
you will get through today
