gratitude for the inner voice,
there's something inside me that knows truth from lies,
and it doesn't really matter what anyone else says.
but the things they say do hurt, sometimes a lot.
when people assume some kind of authority,
to tell me what i should be thinking, how i should feel,
what i should do. who i should be
...that hurts most of all.
they call it helping, but it doesn't help.
i don't need to be more like them.
there's nothing wrong with being me.
grateful to be me
