It's Okay

I know I'm not liked and it's okay.
It still hurts,
but I'm not asking for anyone's approval.
I'm just here to say what I need to say.
To pour it out,
none of you have to get it,
It's okay.

I'm not well liked and understood by few.
It's okay though I persevere through,
the disapproval, indifference, and even hate.
It still hurts but I'll not be beaten down,
I'll continue on my way.

It's okay if I'm not respected,
or very well liked.
I won't let it rule me, stop me from my climb.
It's okay if you view me in a sour light.
That's your opinion of which you have every right.
I'll not attack or argue
your point of view I have no place or right
to disrespect you in that way no matter how it hurts.

I guess all I can say is
it may hurt me deeply and almost
bring tears to bursting,
they're on the surface but I will not fold.
I just want all of you to know that it's okay.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
