Why Whisper? (A Poem)



It’s okay to eat ice cream straight out of its container, or
dine alone,
step on a crack,
sit by the fire escape and watch the moon above
or the traffic below,
get an extra serving,
forget someone’s name,
step on the grass,
go barefoot.

It’s okay to fall asleep during a movie or
smear pasta sauce on your shirt,
trip on your own feet,
get something stuck between your teeth,
have a bad hair day,
be a size bigger,
get lost in a book or a romance,
to stutter.

You don’t always have to be so grand.

Let yourself be.
