Meredith, 33, NY, USA

 

Early 2019... 

A rough start,

Loss, tremendous loss,

Two months later, more loss,

Anxiety, unrest.

 

Walking through a Brooklyn neighborhood,

With one of my favorite girl friends, I say,

‘I want to live in this neighborhood and I don't want anymore roommates.’  

We walk around the ice and slush, 

Freezing and enjoying the necklaces we just made at a jewelry making class.

 

Late 2019... 

Getting better,

Dealing with how to live after loss,

And how to do it positively,

A little less anxious, a little better rested (ZzzQuil helps).

 

Yesterday I moved into the world's tiniest apartment, 

In that neighborhood... 

Alone.  

 

Ready for 2020.
