NPM: Writing Advice to Myself

Speak simply

Write plainly

Think clearly

About what hurts

What frightens

What elates

Gaze unwaveringly

Into the molten core

Of who I am

Do not look away

In disgust

Or revulsion

Or terror

Look on with outward calm

And write with poise and clarity

Set down with finite words

The infinite complexities

Of being human

It’s simple.
