Rolling over in bed this morning,
Thinking “I don’t want to do this”.
Chatting with the cab driver,
Realizing how lucky I truly am.
Sitting on the bus,
Struck with the uncertainty of it all.
Considering the old ways I used to find “control”.
Scrambling through airport security,
Smiling at cheerful David behind the desk,
Cause you never really know what someone else is going through.
Spending the last 10$ on my debit card on lunch,
Because numbness and avoidance won’t make facing life any easier.
