Today.

Today, I don’t feel beautiful.

Today, I don’t feel exceptional.

I feel broken + lost

drowning

trapped beneath the surface.

I feel hopeless.

I feel bland.

numb

I feel despair.

I feel fear

so much fear.

I feel desperate.

I feel tattered

weary

The road less traveled has left me bruised, scraped, thorns in my feet.

So I make a crown

with these thorns

and carry on.
