Alright

Alright

A Poem by Prismgirl

What a strange thing

To fall into the realm

Of feeling alright.

Ive spent so many days

Down and out,

Drowning in my mental cartwheels

And backflips.

To wake up one morning

Feeling like today I can breathe,

Today I can make it,

Today I definitely wont succumb to my demons,

Is such a wonderful thing.

To enjoy my morning coffee

And maybe eat today

Feels like such a triumph.

And that in and of itself

Should really probably bring me down,

But it doesn’t,

Because today I am alright.

Fight the long fight, the demons feast on our insecurities, if you can't beat them join em and feed yourself with strength, feast on endurance and preserver. Assuming you write about yourself or someone you know fighting the long fight, I don't need to tell you, them to hang in there, cause they already know. everything's alright ;)
