You can’t pick yourself up if you haven’t hit the ground.
Prev (Day 6) | Next (Day 8)

Day 5 – Remember Me

It feels like the end, as though the hands have gripped, the muscles have tensed, and any second now the rug will be whipped out from under us all. I feel overshadowed, undermined.
I am afraid. I am afraid that my hopes were in vain, that everything will fall away and I will be left here [...]
