brave

you are brave

even when they
don’t believe you

you are brave

even when your
days aren’t so bad

you are brave

even when your
heart is breaking
even when your
muscles are tired and aching

even when you’re at the
end of your rope

you are brave

you are brave

even when your
body can’t take
all the shit
any longer

you are brave

every time you
show up to a
therapy session

every time you’re
honest with her

every time you
make it past that
second
and third
and fourth court date

you are brave

you are brave
you are brave

you are brave

every time you
speak his name

you are brave

every time you
submerge yourself in
laughter

you are brave

every time you
find yourself breathing
through yet another day

you are brave

and please don’t ever
imagine a moment
in which you are not
