Downstream

Downstream

I sat here… Content…

Content I say… Eyes closed, my lungs… Inhaling and exhaling with deliberation.

And I hurled… With the force of frustration; those burdens that would drain me of my empowerment, into the tempest of the stream never to be seen again.

And… I rejoiced in its defeat.
