    "I like being better," I said
    It feels soft.
    The edges are curved and I glide,
    I do not run.
    It’s like the world is less harsh.
    I no longer feel like a serrated knife-
    Walking around aimlessly.
    Everyday afraid of the next person I will obliterate.


    I no longer fear the words people say.
    They do not matter.
    Because I know I am better.
    Not the very best,
    But better than how I was.

    A yes or a no, no longer sends my head spinning
    Because I’ve grown quite fond of maybe.
    It’s soft.
    Just as I am soft,
    And it feels right.
    In the same way a nice bowl of oatmeal,
    feels warm in the morning.


    Embracing the sunlight, too feels warm.
    My glassy eyes were transformed with tears.
    I thought I would never stop.
    They said crying is healing,
    I spat at their lies-
    Disgusted by my vulnerability.


    I used to be a piece of glass.
    People watched me from a distance,
    Always afraid to get too close
    Because I would shatter.
    But I realize my tears have washed away
    much more than just mascara.
    I learned to feel.

    The phrase ‘It’s a healing process’ used to sound like a death sentence.
    But now I see that it’s just them saying to be patient.
    The virtue I am learning.
    I was told to take refuge in thought that life is gradual,
    I didn’t think it would ever come.
    But it did.

    When each day is not as hard as the last,
    I know that I am no longer a serrated knife.
    I am becoming soft.

    Healing is a journey.”

  5. "She seems so cool, so focused, so quiet, yet her eyes remain fixed upon the horizon. You think you know all there is to know about her immediately upon meeting her, but everything you think you know is wrong. Passion flows through her like a river of blood.
    She only looked away for a moment, and the mask slipped, and you fell. All your tomorrows start here."
