i’m normal. i let the world get to me and i let my heart take a beating. i try to handle it all on my own. i try to figure it out all on my own. i smile and i ache. i search and i give up. i have moments of contentment. And moments where i’m looking for anywhere but here in this shell. There are days when i forget to breathe and forget to just be. Today is not one of those days. Today i am alive.
