Don't tell me to change who I AM.
Don’t tell me how I am supposed to feel.
Don't tell me to stop trusting life and people.
Don't tell me to rely on the rational.
I see your anxiety,
hell, I feel it deeply in my body,
when you look at me like that. Get away from me!
I won’t live with that companion anymore.
I spent 3 years of my life subsisting on anxiety, victim fear and rage.
I can not bear your judgement of the freedom
I have found in my inner trust.
It carried me through those difficult years.
I can not let go of my innocence,
You see, it is my strength, my heart.
I refuse to obsess over any disease I may contract or
anything else that I could be fearful of in life.
You may call me careless or stupid,
I am not.
I've made a conscious choice of who I am.
Stop giving me advice that I didn't ask for,
it will not help me in any way.
Stop talking and listen with your heart instead of your mind or
go back to where you came from and
give yourself the exact same advice instead.
Love, stop worrying about me,
I will not harm the world with my innocence and trust.
And please stop feeding me your own shame, guilt and fears.
I believe in love above all and
I insist on keeping my focus on just that.
