Under my Skin Series: The Day is Done

You sigh knowing there’s nothing you can do. But take a deep breath and plunge.

 The checks and balances are balanced now.
The books in the office have been book marked.
The end of this dreaded day leaves its own stain
its own scar.
You glare into the face of it.
You stare it down like it’s a raging bull.
Marching and tumbling as it walks all over you.
You sigh knowing
there’s nothing you can do.
But take a deep breath and plunge.
Let the experience of it overwhelm you.
Suck it all in.
Give yourself the permission to feel
instead of being numb to dull the pain.
And when it’s all over,
mourn your losses
and walk away.

Know that the end of a dreaded day,
is much better than its beginning.
