This piece saved me.
I saw myself for who I was in that exact moment in time,
and it was spectacular.
Every stillness, every darkness, every aloneness,
it was me, and I had never seen myself like that before.
‘I had travelled through boarders to find my freedom.
I had searched for solitude to learn gratitude.
I wandered and drifted, I spent hours alone in my own,
all just to do.
Something to do
exactly who I am,
the darkest part in the deep ocean…’
