One Little Spark

It's okay
to be not okay.

It's okay
to reach out

even if you are talented
or successful or admired
or fabulously wealthy

or all of the above

and "should" be able to handle
a little stress
a little burnout
a little sadness
a little fear

or even
a whole lot of nothing

empty space
and empty time

because really
life is great

and what would life be
without a little struggle?

it's okay.
