Surfing Abandonment

tears well up into my eyes
my breath slows
but wants to quicken

my mind wants to wander
away from my body

Loneliness
is a feeling
that I am feeling
right now, and
Fear
together they make
Anger

my mind wants to
Think no one Likes
or Cares about
me

the facts say
this is not true

These feelings
I feel
are real

They come
crashing
an incoming tide

I cannot stop
the ocean
from churning

Yet, if I am
Willing
Mindful
Patient
Persistent

I can learn
to swim
and Live to see

the tides of
loneliness
fear
anger
roll back

Steadily
back into the
Powerful
stormy sea of
Me

I am a survivor on mission to synthesize balance from division, to find dialectical healing, learn to love what I am feeling, live in the now, show my peers how.
