I am feeling quiet inside today.
As if a peacefulness has unrolled its yoga mat inside me and got to work.
It’s a calmness.
It is also quite strange.
For me, you see.
It allows me to remember all the sweetness, while acknowledging the scars.
Just because there is darkness in here, doesn’t mean it’s all I have to offer.
There’s also a pain in my chest.
It keeps speaking up.
I’m okay with that too.
That isn’t all there is.
