What is hesitation?
Is it that limit we set for ourselves that causes our frustration??
When I'm upset I tend to lose my shine
I keep my cool, saying "it'll all work out, it'll all be fine."
certain interactions impacted my ability to live freely
and on the hunt to find myself I began to see clearly.
Got caught in the pouring rain
began to run
about four blocks later I paused, kicked a puddle - the colors shifted you could see the thin film interference mixed with my reflection
and I love to see your smile in the pictures you never knew were taken
when you think no one is watching
and you aren't worried about your imperfections
you say the only photos you regret are the ones you didn't take
yet theres something in the moments
the ones we live and don't showcase
remembering them fully centers our focus
I have been trying to find the right words
it usually comes to me when I remember what you said
I picture it perfectly, I picture it in my head.
Your good side is living in your truth
don't be so hard on yourself I get self conscious too.
