Laying It Out

“The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of because words diminish your feelings – words shrink things that seem timeless when they are in your head to no more than living size when they are brought out.” – Stephen King

I
guess
it’s time
to lay out
my feelings without
regard for what others may feel.
In my head, my thoughts are justified and rational,
but said aloud, they sound petty,
like those of a child
who’s whining
“Life is
not
fair.”
