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.

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

Everyday…

Every step

A Daybreak so unapologetically, miraculously, and fearlessly clear.
