fluid motion, misery.
damning circumstance, display.
anguish marching, straight away.

This poem was birthed out of utter grief. After the loss of a loved one, I wrestled with the strength to go on, and yet the world pressured me to. They’d say, “death is just a natural part of life.” But this death felt like the most unnatural thing I had ever experienced…and yet I had to get up everyday and do life as though nothing had ever happened. I was angry.
