People get sad sometimes, I'm accepting sadness.

Accepting Sadness

Dear whom it may concern,

I have a much-needed confession.

I have held onto it for too long, like bacteria, it's immune to any remedy.

It raddles me at night, a choked-up sob barely escapes my throat.

Internal screams make me pound my fist against my tear stained mattress.

Mascara and lip stains smudged all over my teddy bear.

Years over years built up. There was a time when I believed I was finally fine.

But little bits come out scattered sometimes and I am reminded that I am not entirely sane.

I have a much-needed confession.

I'm not alright and I don't think I'll ever be.

Once your soul is dipped into a certain kind of sadness, it never really goes.

And maybe, just maybe it's fine if it becomes a part of me.

I'll be alright.

People get sad sometimes, I'm accepting sadness.
