Remember It’s Okay

What you feed is what you create.

But what about when I don’t feel like being positive?

When rainbows and sunshine make me want to vomit.

When I turn my head in pessimism

I need to know it’s okay to have a bad day.

And that five bad days in a row is not an omen,

But an awning of human emotion.

Tell me, I am okay,

Because the T.V. screen paints it as weak,

Labels you depressed when you see no need to rise.

Some days are harder to get out of bed.

Some days I am a different version of myself.

That does not mean my personalities have split in two.

Aren’t we allowed to be layered

And textured?

I know I have a right,

And feelings change shape by the minute.

But writing it

Makes me remember

That I am not okay

But I will be.

And that’s okay.

  • It’s ok to not be ok. It’s ok to feel weak. Jesus says to cast our burdens unto him because He cares. And so we should tell him how we’re feeling. But then we should get up and get through just that one day. And the next day we lay it at his feet again and before we know it, we’re back on our feet. Keep your head up and cry out to the author of your slavation. I suspect he allows such things so we can come to him. That’s my lesson anyway…
