I want to hold the hand of the future
and squeeze to let it know I'm here
I want to let the future know
I'll do what I can to change what I see
and what I can see between the
the misspoken words
and the terrors
The truth is that I'm scared of this world right
and I'm also in love with it
I don't know what's going to happen
but my heart tells me it will be okay.
And I'm not sure what that okay looks like
(or if I'll like it)
breathe in, breathe out
Wherever you need me to be.
