Resilient no. 1

It gets easier.

The days grow slowly

from their shadows

and light begins to

touch your heart again.

The flowers spring

beneath your feet,

and instead of wondering

why you weren’t enough,

you begin to realize

that you are more

than how the darkness

made you feel.

You are brighter,

sturdier, more human.

You can choose,

and you choose light,

for you are as beautiful as the moon

reflecting the sun,


Even in the darkness.
