be terminally honest
different to the point of a fault
while also
indifferent, somehow

be genetically and wholly unabashed
be careless and
care less
and want
and be so, so impatient
and impulsive –
tell yourself it’s
a good combination

love yourself
even when you don’t
give yourself a reason to

be shameless
know fear as a terrifying tool
open up like a lotus flower
or a bulging trash can
better out than in

talk to yourself
repeat things to yourself
get some good responses
appreciate yourself

don’t change

be unabashed
