'You cry a lot'
Yes I do.
I am not ashamed.
I have grown to love my connection to the water within myself,
that deep pool that rises in times of stress and sadness.
It reminds me that I am not simply flesh and bone.
It makes me wonder where my soul lies.
How do I say no? How do I find a way to control this ocean that resides under my skin,
the waves within my veins that pump my blood faster,
adrenaline that pushes me into risks I couldn’t dream of?
Why would I want to live less?
Why would I want to deny myself this release?
