I’m going to first express how excited I am to be doing Reverb13! Last year was my first time doing anything like it and the whole experience really changed my perspective on my writing, and honestly my life. So, I’m hoping this is exactly what I need to find myself yet again.
Today is an interesting day because it works perfectly with the very first prompt: How do you feel, on this first day, in your mind? In your body? In your heart? In your soul?
The past twenty four hours have been exciting, aggravating, and incredibly stressful (and all done on five hours of sleep). So I’ve been pretty crabby and anti-social all while jonesing for a smoke. At one point today I got really upset and craved for my mom, only to become more upset by not having her.
Today on this very first day I feel emotional.
Today on this very first day my mind is cluttered.
On this very first day my body hurts from too much work,
My heart hurts without the person I’d never thought I could lose.
And yet on this very first day,
I feel a lightness in my soul.
As if there’s going to be a little more tomorrow than there was today.
And I felt my soul dance,
When for just one second all of my thoughts stopped.
I let my soul take over me,
For just one second, I wasn’t in pain.
And then my soul did something I won’t ever be able to explain
My soul opened up and I felt happiness.
My soul let me in and she whispered in my ear.
She told me that after all of this there will be something beautiful.
