An Awakening

The fire coursing through my body
The cold wind biting my bones
The ache, the pain, the struggles
The sensation of inhalation, exhalation
The contraction of muscles — lengthening, shortening
Joy, sorrow, rage, silent uproar in my chest
Every pleasure, every hardship, every chest-beating
All five senses — the good, the bad, the in-between
Every obstacle, every challenge, every bitter pill
The rainbow after the rain, the smell…

Stories that matter. Emotion first and foremost.
