Again. And Again.

Go ahead.
Feel sad again.
Feel angry again.
Feel helpless again.
Feel frightened, furious, confused, incensed, inconsolable. Again.
Feel hopeless. Yet, again.

Go ahead. Take a while to wallow, again.
To stew in it, again.
To let it all rattle around in your head and your heart and your gut. Again.

Then, go ahead and take a deep breath.
Pull yourself together.
And decide what you can do
to make things better.
In any tiny or big way.

Go ahead. Be sad again.
Angry again.
Stew and wallow again.
And then, make a plan
to move forward. Again.

But make a plan this time.
Go ahead.
