okay

Even in the deep pit of the chaos

that has stormed her mind today,

she knows she will be okay,

for when the weight of it all is too heavy,

her soul is still steadied and she is carried,

and no amount of darkness can pull her away.

For since the days of her youth,

she has fought through so many things,

and though at times she has felt

she was nothing

more than a severed thread,

by grace she was reminded

even in the storm

there were brighter days ahead.
