To Be Human 

It’s okay.

It’s okay. 

I am learning 

I am accepting 

that it is okay 

to not be having sex 

to feel exhausted 

to be angry 

to be lost 

to get sad 

it is okay to have emotions 

it is okay that they come out 

it is okay to be hurt and take time for healing 

it is okay to go at your own pace 

life is not linear and you are not behind 

you can change the course of your life at any point in time 

do what makes you happy 

do not expect others to be there for you 

but it is okay to be grateful for them when they are 

I am learning 

It didn’t feel good 

But I am learning it is okay 

At the end of the day 

to be 

Human.
