Poem: The Happening


The happening takes you by surprise.

It almost shatters your soul.

You lose our appetite.

Ignore stomach rumblings,

until your stomach deflates.


You stay indoors for days on end.

A darkened room.

Blackout curtains.


One morning,

The sun streams through an open crack.

Suddenly, you remember,

how being at one with nature,

healed you once before.


Now outside, your legs break free.

Step after step, your lungs fill with air.

Running for a better tomorrow.

Soaked in tranquillity.

Pain a distant memory.


Although you know,

You will face it once again,

When you sit down to rest,

and your mind wanders yet again.

But you tell yourself,

it will be okay.


You choose to live in the moment.

Face your battles as they come.

So, you let the adrenaline,

pumping through your veins,

give you the burst of joy,

that you so desperately crave.
