The Awakening

Bubble of Despair

One day I was lost, enclosed in a seemingly impenetrable bubble of despair and regret,

uncertain as to why I allowed myself to fall so far for a man

who did not intend to plummet with me.

The next day, however, something awoke within me;

it was a new feeling of hope and promise,

something I had not felt in a very long time.

The awakening did not erase the past.

No, life did not work that way,

and I do not really want it to.

But to be free is an overwhelming sensation;

one I had forgotten existed in my plan

to live my present-day life within the comforting arms of history.

For more.

About the Creator

Lizzy Gabrick

I spent many years reading and writing in my adolescence but have found inspiration has lapsed since I have become more settled into my adult life--a career and marriage. I look forward to changing that and sharing my creations with you.
