This too shall pass | NaPoWriMo #8

When you need to wear a smile,
And it feels like a pair of jeans stuck at your waist-line,
Remember, this too shall pass.

When you need to ground your feet,
And it feels like a blender stuck whirring never actually blending,
Remember, this too shall pass.

When you need to close your eyes,
And it feels like a tap that's stuck and refuses to close,
Remember, this too shall pass.


when you have forgotten everything you used to know, and your smile is emptying, and your feet are floating, and your tears are flooding, and your body is drained, remember -- just, remember.
