Breakdown and breakthrough.
They sound so similar.
The root is the same,
but the movement is in two different & opposite directions.
And the speed too.
The breakdown was quick.
Just a matter of...
How long is a thought?
How fast is it? A millisecond?
It was the lightning on a tower,
hurling itself on my entire perception of life.
Definitely, the movement was from up to down,
and then just down.
This happened a few years ago.
It was a long winter where I was mostly horizontal.
The flesh didn't stick to my bones.
The mind was too crowded to allow a functional adult to perform a normal life.
The promise of spring faded away.
I stayed there, on the ground,
like a corpse decomposing into fertile soil,
where the heart could slowly sprout and blossom.
Will there be a breakthrough now?
That opposite force, that opposite movement,
that physicians talk about,
from down to up.
I don't know. I honestly don't mind.
I like to be the soil.
I'm witnessing so much life from here.
And life does not seem bothered to go somewhere else.
I trust that if this indestructible force is not wanting to go anywhere,
it must be that everything is already here.
So I just live.
