abundant nothingness

leaning into the terrifying stillness

discovering that nothingness

isn’t emptiness

it’s abundance

abundant time

abundant peace

abundant creativity

abundant connection

abundant healing

i am doing


to fill my life

writing my pain into joy

acknowledging and embracing the darkness

that leads to finding and basking in the light

taking a break from goals

leaning into

learning how to


not be good

not be impressive

not be accomplished

just be

leaning into the stillness

once terrifying

now a refuge

a place to release the pain in my chest

a place to close my eyes to the blinding screens of output

and open them to dreams

awaiting fulfillment
