It’s Okay

It’s okay to live a little
and to love for the sake of love
and it’s okay to just say no
even if the world threatens to judge.

It’s okay if you find you’re gay
and just as okay to be straight
You can refuse to eat the things life serves you
if you have too much on your plate.

It’s okay to question reality
and ask yourself why you exist
and it’s okay to make up your mind
or if questioned, to plead the fifth

It’s okay to not believe me
and assume the world’s bunged full of liars
It’s okay to deny your parents faith
and find your own way without their bias

It’s okay to respect your parents
even if they chose to spare the rod
and it’s okay to follow science
and it’s okay to believe in God

You should know it’s okay to be scared
of what you just can’t understand
and it’s okay to be a boy
until you’re ready to be a man

It’s okay if you disagree with me
and let society control you
and it’s okay to follow the masses
if when you’re lonely they console you

But what I’m trying to say
is it’s okay to simply be yourself
because in the end, when all’s said and done
I will love you if no one else.
