Healing, a dictionary poem

 

heal‑ing
/hi – līn/

  1. go to therapy. drink tea. journal daily. do yoga. go on long walks. take your medicine. write yourself encouraging notes and stick them on the mirror. take a hot shower and sing your favorite song at the top of your lungs. write down beautiful quotes. take pictures. smile at the result. go to coffee with a friend and think, I am happy.
  2. When she looks you in the eye, you straighten your spine and look right back. You whisper to yourself, enough, I am enough, and when she tries to convince you otherwise, you do not believe her.
  3. a process. day by day, it gets a little better.
