That moment,
when it hits you,
like a thousand baseballs.
That moment
when it comes to you,
in boldface print.
That moment,
when you realize
the truth.
I’m strong,
I’m weak,
I’m rich,
I’m poor,
I’m pretty,
I’m not.
That moment,
When the world ends,
or begins.
That moment,
when it hits you,
like a slap in the face.
And then,

You realize.


The author's comments:
Realization is a strong feeling that can hurt or cure. It's a very interesting feeling, one that I never understood completely. How can something just click suddenly when it's been right in front of you the whole time?
