I Half Smile

tender silence
within me

all at once
I let go
the corners
of my mouth
turn slightly up

a cool breeze
on my sill
lifts my spirit

soft tresses
tickle my face

Crow shouts out loudly
Caw-caw! Caw-caw!

I half-smile

warm is this moment
before light breaks
and the mass wake

feelings and thoughts
exhale slowly

and I am simply being
here now

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.
