Today

Today was a day of heavy movements,
a dragging spell of “I can’t do this
anymore.”

The more I make myself believe that
life is supposed to be a heart-wrenching
struggle, the more beauty envelops
this pain.

I stop searching for a smile, and
learn to laugh in the midst of “misery.”
A certain insanity is required to survive
with spirit untouched.

A radical embrace of ambivalence.
A balance between a grimace and
a beam.
