It’s OK if You’re not OK

Our eyes cry the same type of tears

Our hearts feel the same type of pain

 .

I don’t need you to smile if you’re hurting

By His Grace, I can handle your hurt

 .

You don’t have to be strong all the time

You don’t have to pretend it’s just fine…

  .

I’m not scared of your tears. I won’t run away

What do you need? How can I pray?

  .

It’s okay if you’re not okay…

  .

You are still one of my favorites, on Earth…

Even when your mind doesn’t match His name

  .

I’m not here for your fame, or to cast the blame

I’ve made many mistakes, gone through guilt & shame

 .

It’s okay if you’re not okay… Yet,

 .

If you hide from me, do not hide from Him

You won’t drown in these tears. He will help you swim

 .

He will help you jump through each hellish hoop

As far as New York is from Guadeloupe!

 .

He is stronger than life, death, and night or day

He will show you the way to escape, so I pray

  .

It’s okay if you’re not okay…
