Creative Writing

This week I was brave:

By Hannah Yale

This week I was brave:

I asked for help. 

I advocated for my needs.

I stood up for myself when I wasn’t being treated right, 

and I didn’t back down to make anyone else feel better. 

I walked away from something that was hurting me.

I walked away from someone I loved.

I cried. A lot.

I got high. A lot.

I went to therapy.

I drew a picture of my ideal relationship.

I skipped class, and pet a lot of dogs,

and forgot to eat.

I read a poem aloud to a room full of strangers.

I cried more and got high more.

I missed him, and wished that I didn’t,

and wished that he missed me.

But I didn’t tell him that.
