Breakdowns and breakthroughs

Updated: Jul 28, 2023

I riddle myself with unrealistic expectations,

Hold myself to successes that are often inaccessible,

And at the end of the day,

Play jury.

Even the admission of my inner austerity renders me remorseful-

Guilty again, gavels my inner judge!

But breakdowns, I’m learning,

Are opportunities.

What visible creature nestled in our atmosphere

Other than we,

Can contemplate the way that we do?

Create the way that we do?

Destroy the way that we do?


Today, given this opportunity,

I identify as a victor.

And you…

Are as well.

Because we are still here, despite it all.
