Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.


I can’t bottle up anymore.
The distills are spilling over.
All over me, through my phone, over my text messages, through my eyes and down my face.
I can’t hold anymore.
The shelves are overstocked
If I can sell these bottles as art then I can store more later.
Distill my pain into poetry
And turn my shame into pride.

Take it from me, just let yourself feel. Don't bottle it up and hide it all away from the world. It's going to come out one way or another and it's not going to be pretty.

That's some solid advice. I've never been one for hiding my feelings. I just let it all out! "Let it go! Let it go! Can't hold it back anymore!" (Frozen reference) Nice job!
