The Days

For the days
The sun streams in too strongly through the window
For the days
When “rise and shine” feels like a cruel taunt
For the days
When you feel 12 steps behind everyone else
For the days
When you feel like the road not taken

Know that
Showing up is winning
Breathing is winning
Existing is winning
Not knowing how to
Stop feeling like this
But persevering anyway
Is still winning

For the days
When you can’t root for yourself
I am rooting for you
For the days
When my words aren’t enough
On those days,
I will give you my hand.
