So Thankful Sundays

“Grateful” A Poem by JaySoJay

I am grateful for the time

I am grateful for the grind

I am grateful for the tears

If it wasn’t for you, I would not have cried

I would not have learned how to fly

Running away from you

Forced me to use my wings instead of my legs.

I am grateful for the pain

I am grateful for the days

I am grateful for the faith

That brought my anxiety down

I am grateful that I have the strength

To tell my story now.

I am grateful to be have loved you

I am grateful to fully know you

I am grateful to know the truth

That I was never meant for you.

I am grateful that I have time for myself

I am grateful for the realization that I no longer need your help.

That’s growth.

It’s Okay To Not Be Okay!     A Poem by JaySoJay

It’s okay to not be okay

It’s okay to feel sad somedays

It’s okay to actually feel your pain.

It’s okay to stop carrying the weight

It’s okay to go out on a date

It’s okay to show up for yourself

And not be late.

It’s okay to cry

It’s okay to be shy

It’s okay to say goodbye.

It’s okay to put yourself first

Because it’s not okay to disregard your needs

Pleasing people hurts, and it hurts you the worse.

It’s okay to smile

It’s okay to laugh

It’s okay to say ‘No’

And if people are displeased with your happiness

It’s okay to tell people that they have to Go!
