What if

What if I stop guilting myself for what feels good?
What if I stop asking for permission?
What if I stop playing by the old rules?

What if I decide I don’t want the shame?
What if I decide to enjoy these moments?
What if I decide I don’t have to pretend?

What if I give myself a chance to try?
What if I give myself the space to think?
What if I give myself a blank page to work it out?

What if I find a whole world of possibility?
What if it takes me somewhere I’ve never been?
What if I find a little magic?

What if I say I don’t want to do this?
What if he says he can’t do this?
What we let it be what it is?
That’s what I really want.

Because what if it’s only for this little while?
