"There is nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times he is sent away"


One night,

I ran out of options.

I looked around me and I was alone.

No one wanted to hear my complaints, my worries,

My fears.

No one could see the tears streaming down my face.

I fell to my knees.

I clasped my hands together,

I clenched my eyes even tighter.

I spoke so softly, only God could hear.

There were long pauses.

Not a thought passed through my mind.

There were tears.

I wanted to scream.

I wanted to cry.

I wanted to remain completely silent.

I fell asleep like that.

I woke,

And I faced the world.

The world has never looked so beautiful.

The author's comments:
I do not pray. I am not religious. But this night, I truly ran out of options. And I would like to think that some divine being hear my pleas for relief from this pain. That some wonderful guardian angel is looking after me. That someone is always there to listen.
