Hey You,

The one who carries all the burdens on your shoulders.
The one who doesn’t fall apart.
The one that worries for your loved ones, but never really tells them how.

How you feel is valid.
How you feel is right.
How you feel is just another reason why.

Why you wake up in the morning.
Why you write at night.
Why you kneel there praying to find where.

Where you’ll be tomorrow.
Where you’ll make a change.
Where your feelings find you and that will tell you when.

When it’s time to let go.
When it’s right to stay.
When to put you first because it’s okay.

It’s okay, you’re not responsible.
It’s okay to take a break.
It’s okay for YOU to receive some love and care.

And always remember: It’s okay not to be okay.

Thanks for reading,

Gabby Salazar
