It is okay not to know,

I don’t know either.

It is okay to wait,

How else can you be sure?

It is okay to just try,

Who said it had to be perfect?

It is okay to forget and fade,

Who has it all left together any way?

It is okay to forgive,

You won’t regret it.

It is okay to change your mind,

Why else are you here?

It is okay to be still,

Now I know.

I am a second-grade teacher and pastor-to-be who loves people. I spend my weekends with friends or wandering the museums of DC alone and with a journal, trying to put words on the places of the soul that still feel wordless. I spent most of my days at school trying to learn patience through my students and running on sheer nerdy passion. I follow Jesus Christ, and savor that as my most important identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
