It swallows us whole
And spits us back out
To face the day
How can they expect us to be normal?
It isn’t normal
Pain zombies walking through the streets
Lost in our sufferings minds,
When did feelings become the enemy,
When did we listen to the voices
Who told us to keep pushing through?
Life is a miracle
And with it, all sacred sounds,
Grief, joy, shame,
Spoken on sacred lips,
Felt in sacred hearts
