Winter to Spring

the last 4 years

have been harder than I could have imagined

people I love died

trauma introduced itself and overstayed its welcome

God fell silent and life became mundane

and yet

the reflection I see in the bathroom mirror is almost


because I see a strength foreign to my brain

that is somehow

muscle memory to my heart

– life gets richer when you lean in
