I long for peaceful waters.

So lay down.

Allowing the current to move me with it’s will.

Tired of the struggle, I float.

Farther from land, farther from home.

But home?

Home is where I live.

Home is where the people that love me live.

Live?

Life’s currents are strong.

Sometimes unrelenting, it’s wave can upend.

But?

Is it possible to see the sun again?

Is not that hope of tomorrow worth fighting for?

I know the ceremonial performances of everyday life can exhaust the soul.

Draining you of precious energy.

Breathe.

All your problems won’t be solved today

But,

Perhaps just getting through today is victory enough.

Perhaps.

Is this “perhaps” not worthy of discovery?

You are the culmination of every storm you’ve ever weathered.

Wear your battle scars with pride,

Survive.

Thrive.

Live, my love.

Live.
