Despite It All

Aurelia Viola - Sunday, June 24, 2018

deep breaths ponder euphoria

a feeling that lasts nearly a split second,

a sliver of time in the vast ocean of this life


in those moments when everything is right,

when the things we strive for balance on our slippery fingers;

holding it for the time it takes light to travel,

balanced like a weight on a pin


reaching for content-ness,

brushing it with a finger,

never gaining a hold of what we want most,

but we extend ourselves again


our focus remains steady,

in peace and silence;

even metronome breath

stumbling just to stand,

pain to feel it all again


because despite it all

we keep running,

we keep stretching,

we keep working

and pushing


because despite our struggles

we have no limits
