Maybe You Aren’t ‘Too Much’ Maybe Everyone Else Isn’t Enough

  • 0
Pablo Orcaray

Last night, I stood watching
the sunset blush divine
across the city skyline
and realized I don’t like
the word “too”

throughout your life,
people will say
you are “too”—

too sensitive
too strong
too emotional
too intense
too trusting
too forgiving
too reserved
too loud
too proud
too nervous
too confident
too driven
too open
too heartbroken
too happy
too mad
too sad
too much.

But these are the things
that make you
uniquely, exquisitely you.

Ignore the people
who say
you are “too”—

no one ever said
a sunset was too beautiful.

They simply said
it was beautiful.TC mark
