whole again

I am happy in unbearable way.

when you have to dance
and cannot dance hard enough to let all
the peace and contentment bubbling
inside you run into the world
happy in a way

earned back after so many years,
Put back together with the confidence and joy of being twenty
the simplicity of being young—earned back

with patience, tears, and time.
on the other side of much sadness—
I have met myself again for the first time.

it’s like I am twenty all over again, but happier.
