today I am grateful for my tears.

it washes my righteousness and anger away, bringing me back to zero—a reboot if you will— and i am once again filled with peace and hope, knowing there isn’t anything that separates us all. i harbor no ill will in this quiet moment, after my inner rain lets its last drop flow

i can rejoin humanity in a positive light

it’s not a whitewashing: whitewashing covers over, leaving the stain in place. it’s a cleansing, washing away the pain so that it doesn’t exist… anymore

i know i’m not alone. i’m grateful that i’m not alone.

i’m grateful for my cleansing tears.
