I don't know how I feel

I don’t know how I feel today.
Maybe I feel dangerous.
I could fail a test on purpose
I could talk back to my parents
I could jump from the top of a staircase
I could rip up a textbook
I could break a boy’s heart
And do it without a single regret.

I don’t know how I feel today.
Maybe I feel vivacious.
I could wear a dress with neon colors
I could sing pop lyrics out loud
I could tell everyone they’re beautiful
I could fall in love with a boy for a moment
And do it without a single regret.

I don’t know how I feel today.
Maybe I feel romantic.
I could read a John Green book in a day
I could listen to acoustic love songs
I could obsess over someone
And do it without a single regret.

I don’t know how I feel today.
Maybe I feel vulnerable.
I could let a boy break my heart
I could cry about it for a week
And do it without a single regret.

I don’t know how I feel today.
Maybe I feel hopeless.
I could give up on love entirely
And do it without a single regret.

I don’t know how I feel today./ Maybe I feel dangerous.

“What they are doing not only puts Guatemala at risk but the entire region. Bit by bit, for more than a year, they have been trying to divide us. The elections are at risk. We are six months away.”
