It hits me as hard as running into a cement wall.
It feels like plummeting 500 feet into freezing cold water.
For a second I can't breathe.
I feel myself falling into the moment.
I try to pull it together before anyone sees.
I can't fall apart.
I'll keep going until the next time this happens-get through it-and keep going again.
That's what life is all about right? I'll make it through this.
Give me strength.
