To write one hundred hopeful words every day for one hundred days


Website:


You are worth getting blisters for

And losing precious sleep

You are worth waiting in the cold

And listening to music I hate

Reading books that make me sad

And the empty pangs of need

Spending money I can’t afford

Feeling too anxious to eat.

You are worth every reckless thought

And every hopeful dream

The inevitable disappointments

The teenage tongue-tied squirming

Agonizing over every word. Giving meaning to silence. And glances.

I expect nothing, because I love this kind of pain

I can stomach this, and so much more, not to feel numb again.

Because You're Worth It
