I Reserve the Right to…

Today, I feel ______________. But I know that can’t last.

Because I’ve always survived—somehow—those things in my past

That made me feel ___________, or __________, or scared.

So, even though I’m feeling ________________, I’m also prepared.

Today, I can’t ______________, because I am grieving.

But tomorrow, I’ll be _____________. Because I’m bent on achieving

_______________ for myself, because I deserve it.

If happiness is a right, I damn well reserve it.

My ___________ isn’t perfect, and neither am I.

But from this moment, I reserve the right to try.

So today I promise to _____________ my __________.

I believe that someday, my life will be _____________.
