Look

 

Take a look in the mirror.

Look into your eyes.

Do you see the heaviness there?

Emptiness has taken over after years of shutting down.

Walls so tall they surpass heaven, wrap around, and dip back down to hell.

Your muscles in your neck are tense.

That’s the years and years of clenching your fist to keep from crying.

Your shoulder’s are hunched from all the weight that your world piles on.

Heavy bag after heavy bag of memories that you have yet to go over again for the millionth time.

Breath.

Close your eyes and take a breath.

Stop worrying about how that person said “have a good day” at the store.

Stop rethinking that right turn you took while the light was still red.

No one cares about the music you play in the car with your windows down.

Close your eyes tighter.

Push down those tears.

Bite that quivering lip.

Now open your eyes and remember who the fuck you are.
