Contrast

Some days I feel as tall
and confident as a beauty 
queen. I walk with my head
held high, so my crown doesn't
fall. I effortlessly spread 
kindness and joy as it 
overflows from within me.

Other days I feel as hopeless 
and low as a prisoner who's 
been living in darkness and 
isolation for too many years 
to count. All the pain I've 
felt fresh, and the wounds 
I thought healed re-open again, 
and every negative thing my way 
is like salt pressing on them.
