I’ve suffocated long enough. I’ve had days where I no longer felt like me, face covered in hair as the appearance of my identity began fading. I literally gave up on the offers life had to pleasure. No matter how bright the sun shined my attitude grew darker as the days slipped away. Mirrors I ignored, hiding myself away from the reflection of known truth I could bare to glance, it was obvious I lost sight of who I was. The position of caring I no longer wanted, in fact, I was making preparations on turning in my resignation. At that moment I felt as if not enough words could recessitate my attitude, my life literally flatlining itself away through rain drops. If breathing again were only simple as walking…. I’ve been without air long enough. I’m determined to breathe again.
