DEATH TO 2015

Art, Uncategorized

By Yvonne Villasenor

 

Here lie the days-

The ones where I

 

Lost my loves

Some faded away from indifference

And some by Death itself

 

Lost my happiness

 

Fell and became crippled by anxiety

And the darkest despair

 

Lost myself

 

Glanced at my reflection and forgot who I was

And what my purpose was here

 

Only to one day

Bring myself back up

 

Enough to get out of bed

Enough to shower

Enough to eat

And enough to realize

 

Although I had lost so much

The little I gained was

 

The love from those close to me

 

And reassured me

It was okay to have bad days

 

The confidence to save myself

 

On the days I couldn’t bring myself to talk

To anybody else

 

The great amount of self-respect I knew I deserved

And slowly

But surely

Being okay with who I am

Being okay with what I look like

Being okay with not always being okay

 

Here lie those days

 

And here’s to the ones

That will bring me just as much

Joy and melancholy
