bottle you up.

don’t hide your face.
don’t hide your heart.
don’t hide your soul.
don’t keep who you are
all to yourself.
let the world see you,
let them see the wonderful
creation that you are.
let them marvel at the
admirable light that shines
inside of you, darling.
don’t keep your beauty
and wonder to yourself.
share your brave heart,
show your kind spirit and
your gentle beauty.
but don’t keep the ugly inside.
don’t keep your doubts and
your fears and your sadness
to yourself.
don’t drown in your sorrows
and your tears.
don’t bottle yourself up.

  1. I really needed to hear this today. This is beautiful and I think at some point we all let that ugly side overpower our beauty instead of acknowledging we can be both.

    Kudos to you, Doll!

    1. You are so right, Valerie! It’s not healthy to be afraid and not let anyone else see who we really are, the good parts of us and the not-so-good parts, too. It’s not safe to bottle it all up. We need to express ourselves and be in community. I’m so glad you liked this piece, lovely! Xx
