Keep It Together

Location

They say it all the time.

"Keep it together"

But what am I keeping together?

My life is filled with things that constantly bring me down and make me wonder why I'm still around.

 

"Keep it together"

So many whispers going around about who I am and what I should be.

About why am I wearing the clothes that I'm wearing and that my laugh and smile is weird.

About how I'm too short and that no guy will ever like me.

 

"Keep it together"

But,

There is really nothing to keep together because I already have it all together.

I'm happy with who I am and I wouldn't want to be any other person beside me.

 

"Keep it together"

I tell myself when I'm laughing without a care in the world.

I don't care who sees me and I don't care what they say about me.

I am my own person and I love me for me.

 

"Keep it together"

I'm a feminist and that's ok.

I'm a dancer and that's awesome.

I have long, curly hair and that's great.

I've been wearing glasses for 10 years and have sparkling, brown eyes and that's spectacular.

I undertsand my flaws and know that they can't take over me because I was born this way and I can't change that.

 

"Keep it together.. but it's okay to fall apart too, especially if that's what you do."
