There is hope in this day.
There is joy and laughter and light.
There is love in this day,
Despite uncertain times.
Some days mirth is harder to find.
Some days leave you spent and shattered—
Exhausting your spirit, your soul, your mind.
But I can come out of the darkness,
Though the path may contort and confound.
I can find the means to move forward.
It is small yet solid ground.
I’ve been broken, but not defeated.
I’ve survived pain and pressure and mourned.
Yet I can still find good in this moment.
And I know I will be whole.
