The Morning After Watching 13 Reasons Why


The morning is covered in rain.

Cold droplets worked to wash away

The cold night painted dark blue.

I know this because I spent all night watching,

Waiting for the darkness to melt away

To be replaced by a more hopeful, pleasant hue.

I’ve been at war with myself for a while now,

For as long as I can remember, actually.

Once upon a time, I was told

You lose all the battles you choose not to pick.

So I continued this fight knowing its unsustainable

Knowing someday I’m going to hit my threshold

But today, I am victorious

Just for waking up this morning.

Death, I have fought to make it to another day

And you have not taken me yet.

I exist. I am alive. I matter. 

That is not something you can take away.
