All Is Well

Standard

It changes quickly.
(It always does.)
A good night of sleep
or a solid meal
and the demons
that seemed so ferocious
yesterday
dissipate back into wisps of ether,
and I’m left wondering
what I got so worked up about.
And so it goes,
the cyclical nature
of weather and emotions
and time and libidos…
and all I can do
is try to slow down
my own thinking
take a deep breath,
and remember
all is well.

 

 

PS

I have found that my journals help to reveal the cyclical nature of things.  They have been a source of great comfort to me, as I see that the struggles I’m having now are the same ones I had when I was 20.  Different characters, different contexts, but same feelings: fear, anxiety, depression, powerlessness, loneliness, transmuted into courage, confidence, joy, empowerment, connection.  Cycling endlessly, for all time.
