Unclench that jaw that’s tightening up right now.
When you breathe out,
let all of the negative energy and dark thoughts seethe out of your pores
and allow your body to relax
So many times we tighten up and allow our worlds to cluster
as if we were too large for the boxes we’re confided in.
That’s that stress
That’s that anxiety
That endlessly consumes our membranes with things we fear we’ll never conquer
because they seem to grow larger and try to drown us in a violent hurricane with
piercing rainwater and flurrying winds.
It will be ok.
You will survive these storms
This will not be your final catastrophe.
All that that consumes you will subside one day
and you will be infused with joy and good fortune.
All those long nights
The days where those two tears won’t come down,
but your headaches and your body is forcing you to cry
All those times you sit in despair and hate-yourself wondering
Will turn into thank you god
Because your time is coming
Unclench that jaw,
change that frown to a smile
And fix your crown.
Because your coronation is on that horizon with the rising sun.
And like a phoenix from the ashes,
you will rise too from all the tragedy, pain, and frustration that burns you alive
And you will fly off into the sunset to live your best life
