wake up new,
face unrecognizable from yesterday’s,
and that’s okay.

find new meaning in stretching, 
in eating,
be delighted by the sun’s
strong light on the wall

I want to grow up comfortable.
I want to be satisfied.
I want to have wrinkles from smiling.

I’m gonna
go on walks outside and
I’ll tell my friends
“that’s okay,”
when they’re worried
and smile when I see a cat

I will feel different than I did before.
I am a person who changes.

feel my face and
be okay with what I find,
feel my skin and feel neutral (I think there is happiness
in neutrality),
feel happy to be here

here with you,
all of you

I will be happy around people.

it’s who
I want to be.
