  • We try so hard to hold it all together, to hold it all in.
    Its all fine.
    Its all ok. It builds.

    Holding on. It builds.

    Stop your breath, Holding in. It builds.

    Then something from outside, somewhere comes and to the depth reaches.
    And brimming over with this new weight you release.
    You release it all.
    And sing.
