Entering Dai Break

It began as a feeling that started in my legs and crept its way up my spine.

It reached my head; and to every strand on my head.

It made a home inside.

I looked around the room, and it began to look brighter.

It was the dead middle of winter, but I saw summer.

.

.

felt a lump arise in my throat.

I couldn’t even murmur a simple sound.

My fingers tingled, and I just watched the subtle tremble.

I looked around the room at everyone wondering if they ever had the privilege to experience this.

.

.

My heart began to compete with every breath I took; three per heartbeat.

I took a walk thinking I could shake the feeling.

I blamed it on jitters.

I felt tears in my eyes but nothing weighed down on my heart.

.

.

I thought back to last October and how I sat after midnight and begged for mercy.

Everyday…

Every step

And Every breath I take… are all apart of my greatest miracle.

I learned to move with knowledge and not temporary emotions.

I accepted blessings that are still being given to me.

I fashioned myself with the helmet of salvation

.

.

It was only when I realized that I held myself back, that I understood how important it was to enter Daybreak…

A Daybreak so unapologetically, miraculously, and fearlessly clear.
