It's ok

It's ok to feel like the world is ending
It's ok to have a sleepless night
It's ok when it's raining
It's ok when the sun is not shining bright

Having been through storms instills deep hope
That the blue sky can be out of reach but never gone
In every storm I learn that I can cope
Even though within the storm my heart feels worn

And sometimes you will feel that you're not made for this
Whenever this time comes focus on what you can do
For what you can't do is a universe of terror
But what you can do is the ship that keeps you from drowning

I'm not saying it will always be fine
It won't
Sometimes it will be hard
Sometimes it will feel like you can't go on
But in my life this has never been true
And this is my wish for you
That it is a lie, always
That there is always a way

There is no promise in this world
But there is hope
That whatever comes your way
Even though it feels terrible
Deep within you there will always be a voice
That can whisper, that can say

It's not good
It sucks

But it's ok

Author's Note
This week I had a phase where worrying about my work robbed me of a night of sleep and I really had to talk with some people, step back and gain some perspective. No matter how this time sucked, I believe it was necessary to make me ready for the rest of the year. I learned that I care a lot and I have to find a balance, I have to find that inner voice that tells me it's ok, even when external events suck. This is my hope for everyone, that they can find that voice.
