Brave

How can I be brave?
Your body says
To stop
This
Always asking
Permission

How can I be brave?
Seems easier these days
When I have shut my head
Tight
Closed my eyes
Cloud;

Turned away from-

Instagram
Online news
Gossip

:Other people’s panic

I feel brave
No

I just feel human
Suddenly
Mysteriously
Once again

Somehow!

Somehow, I feel
|suprise| -myself
Now that I have

Stopped passively
Copiously
Continuously
Gulping
Social media
Like water

I am starving
In a desert
I am
Dry

This wagon is carrying me
So far
Further than I have been
-since the early ‘aughts
-into my own head

& I
had forgotten
how much
I like

Myself

And how much easier it is
To be
Happy

When, I have shut the door
On
Everybody

Suprise: I don’t need you
And I don’t want you either
