A Balloon

By Ariella Garfinkle, TIWP Student 

“You know the truth: sometimes it does hurt that much.” —Eve Ensler

It’s okay to feel.
It’s okay to cry.
It’s okay to scream.
You need to feel
from the tips of your toes
to the crown of your head.
A balloon filled to the brim
with emotions
on the edge of popping
is inevitably a disaster
that’s a challenge to overcome.
Don’t let the balloon blow up.
Express your emotions.
Break the pattern.
You’re capable.
