"The Sun Still Shines"
Even in winter, even in the midst of the storm, the sun is still there.
Somewhere, up above the clouds, it still shines and warms and pulls
at the life buried deep inside the brown branches and frozen earth.
The sun is there! Spring will come! The clouds cannot stay forever!
This poem is my wish for myself today. I went to the pharmacy in the hope that my miracle drug-the Adderall-would be ready, but it wasn't there yet. So, I have to endure the entire weekend still feeling this skin-crawling feeling. I don't know how I'll endure it, but I guess I'll just have to find a way. I'm already taking more Ativan than I'm supposed to, even though I can hardly feel its effects anymore. I guess I've been on it too long. Hopefully the sun shines for me this weekend.
