Day 147 – Free

The world does not care
about you.

No one is watching you fall on your face,
nobody notices you climbing back up.

I think,
by your sadness,
you know this. But

why would you let that hold you back

when it could set you free?


Day 113 – Another Beast

From the moment my fingers
close around my glasses
I am another beast

They close around steering wheels,
dry-erase markers,
red pens and credit cards,
zippers and shoelaces,
milk cartons,

but when they hold my glasses
like you’d hold a climbing rope
a stress ball, a life preserver;
like you’d hold a newborn,
a lightsaber, a key

I am ready to read
I am ready to see
I am ready to be free

1) Lydia Thomas
2) vesselsministry
3) Annette Rochelle Aben
4) lonestarjake88
5) lissygonzalez
6) Darrel H
