Conformity Ain't Cool No More

PART 1 : THE APOLOGY

I am sorry

That i fed you

Watered down words

I thought that by doing so

They’d be easier to swallow

Little did I know

I was only choking myself

In the process.

 

PART 2 : THE AFTERMATH

Feeding everyone

Watered down words

Seemed like

The best solution

At the  time

Easier to digest

And no one

Would leave the table

Feeling uncomfortable

Except me.

Dear self ,

Remember the words of Maya Angelou during times such as this :

“there is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you”.

Your words hold more power than you think

The power of God within you , is greater than you think.

You are the only source of light some will see in their lifetime

Don’t dim it , for the sake of others.

Be you , without apologizing for it.

Not everyone will like what you have to say

And that’s okay.

Don’t let this world

Swallow you whole

And digest you

Into something you are not.

Remember to do the work

With joy

Give honor where it’s due

And you will not fail.

 

Sincerely ,

Self
