None of us can keep it together 100% of the time, especially when we’re afraid. We eventually learn that it’s ok to fall apart. We become pros at putting the pieces back together, so good in fact that most people around us wouldn’t know we were struggling unless we wrote a poem about it and put it on the internet.

There is nothing worse than a thought about a feeling turning into what appears to be a physical manifestation of that fear. You have displayed that fear quite well in your poem. I loved it!
Thank you so much!
Wow, I love your caption on this. So accurate!
Superb poem. Grounded and painful.
“so good in fact that most people around us wouldn’t know we were struggling unless we wrote a poem about it and put it on the internet” I’m Assuming this is what you just did. Hang in there.
Hanging tight! Thanks 🙂
Keep writing 😉
I hope you are okay. Your poem captured your struggle in a visceral way. Feeling “ungrounded” can cause your whole world to tilt and become disoriented. I hope all levels off for you sooner than later 🙂
Thank you! That really means a lot.
