I’m barely breathing.
Pain deep in my bones.
Heart aching with loneliness.
Stomach twisted into origami.
It’s the coldest at the bottom.
Misery in every moment.
All I want is to feel the cool breeze on a warm spring day.
To smile deeply.
Feel joy once more.
“Don’t worry!” my mind tells me.
You have survived all that has come so far.
Darkness will become light.
Thanks to impermanence.
We will laugh, smile, and feel joy once more.
