Acceptable Anger

You can be angry, that's all right.
I am granting you permission,
although I don't hold that authority.
But if it makes you feel like more
of a stronghold, if it's what you need,
then I want you to know that it's okay.

And if you really knew me, you'd know
that I love that music. It moves my soul.
I think you might, for I know you,
at least, I believe I do.
I am a part of your world, I know.
When you assure me, it brings tears.
Because never have I had something like this,
Never have things been so beautiful
not perfect, not easy, but lovely.
Worth it. Yeah, it's all worth it.

That's where we are,
and though I'm not, it's okay
for you to be angry.
