Message from Writer

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."
"Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope."
"You may write me down in history with your bitter, twisted lines. You may trod me in the very dirt, but still, like dust, I'll rise."
-Maya Angelou

Sink In

It always feels so big,
All the insurmountable tasks.
So big before you even start,
It seems distant,
And it can't be happening,
Not to you.

It's always someone else,
Always another name,
Always someone other's
Tally mark slotted up in death's book.

And it's never happening to you,
Even when it is,
Always distant, far away,
Like the stars,
So small,
So large.

It's always so far off,
You can never quite comprehend,
Like thunder
Reaction always delayed,
It takes a while for it all to sink in.
