Awaken



A gentle breeze.
Wind in your hair.
Nope.

Hot air.

A slap in the face.
Anger.
Aggressiveness.
Compassion?
Nope.

It’s never been there.
Blown away by the harshness of your own reality.

And now, the shadow, within the darkness is forever and always looming.

Escape is NOT an option.
And then…
                   I awaken.
