Somedays I smile but deep down I am crashing.
I act like I am okay but my pillow soaks wet at night.
I suck my teeth to avoid wailing and waking up the whole village.
Is it possible to feel your heart crash and the tiny pieces crumble?
Is it normal to wish you could reach out to the poor human being and help them?
If it is possible why is it that you feel powerless, weak and defeated.
You don’t have to give up. You are stronger than you think.
You don’t have to walk away from the people that you love, allow them to walk with you.
Your life might not be perfect but you are here and that calls for celebration.
December is here and I am proud of you for not giving up. May this month be filled with joy and good news month.
