I can see a picturesque pond

Joyfulness filled my body, Finally! It exists

I’ll use all my energy, I will use all of it, I insist

What part of the empty glass didn’t you see?

Drop after drop of despair leaked down the roof of my mind

The drops soon turned into a turbulent ocean as they combined

 

Bewilderment took over

I let go of it

The water leaks out

My mind is free of the turbulent ocean
