Coming up

Coming up for air

Coming out for light


Checking out

Opening up

My perception has shifted

I have new thoughts

I have forgotten what my comfort zone was

Things are both less and more important

Connection is so different I cannot explain it in terms of its origins

Tragedy has another definition

Pain is not so frightening

Loss is not unilateral

Possibilities become endless

Patterns become less obvious

Randomness makes more sense

Responsibility and credit seem superfluous

The lack of control becomes the penalty and the gift

Entitlement has to be forgotten

Faith needs to replace it

Appreciation of what was

for what it was and what it could never be

Not comparing

Feeling secure in the emotion, the connection, the bond and the experience

That whatever happens to other people

does not affect

my sense of self-worth

 Everything is unfair

The determined advantage

The pre-determined disadvantage

My legs when others have none

My food when children are hungry

My home when people are fleeing

Nobody deserves it


being everything

We can do so much about so much

But letting go by doing nothing

seems to go against my nature

But I have to leave this space now

There is nothing more to be done now

It is finally over now
