Don’t Be Affraid To Be Soft by Chris Murray

The world will bloody your knuckles
without even trying.

If you cry in front of the women you love,
they will still love you.

Strong does not mean:
tall
loud
angry.

Strong means
swallowing the ocean
of salt water in your mouth
and remembering why
the ocean is so beautiful.

The best cure for a hangover
is laughing at yourself.

Don’t forget to tell her you love her.

It’s ok to tell him you love him.

The only person you can make love you
is yourself.

There is room in your body
for who you are now
because the person you used to be
grew strong hips
that can hold anything.

Don’t forget to say thank you.

Don’t be afraid to be soft.
