Sometimes

Sometimes I look in the mirror
To make sure I’m still there
I trace the scars
That I made
Five years ago
To remember who I used to be
And remember
Who I am now
How life is a forward march
Not a backward step

Sometimes I swallow the lump
In my throat
To get through the day
I let the cold soak into my skin
So that my bones can feel
The windows rolled down
Air rushing so that I can
Feel the world that I’m in
Because I want to stay in it
For life to continue to begin
