turning over leaves, or more like tree stumps

i feel vulnerable but safe
at the same time
i’m in a new phase, i guess you could say
i am normally so emotionally independent
that i don’t allow others to tell me how to
feel, i am well aware of why
i am this way, it’s rather
simple, it is because
i care about my image, i want people to think
i have it all together, but now
i’m more receptive but also
susceptible
and so today i woke up and i realized
i have to open myself to being simply
human
because i’m the type of person that wants it done right
the first time or i don’t
want it done at all
i want to open myself up to mistakes
to falling
to feeling hurt

and believing that i can
rebuild myself in the event
everything goes awry

and so i will

this
is about
self-trust
