What if I was Unapologetically Myself

Updated: Jan 3, 2019

It feels like my body

Responds to the energy

Around me


How much of me

Is allowed


Because I don’t want the pain

Of rejection

Of disapproving eyes

I must shield myself from

Words that could hurt

I found I would rather change myself

In attempt

To meet someone else’s acceptance bar

Even if it’s so misaligned with mine

A process so habitual

It’s almost unconscious

And let’s be honest

I do want your approval

But lately I’ve found that, even more importantly

I want to say to myself

“This is me”

And approve of that

I’ve gotten stronger


I’m less afraid

Of what could happen

If I am unapologetically myself
