I Think I Might Be Happy

Persons who have endured long bouts of trauma stress, depression, anxiety, often find it hard to accept in being happy, and accepting comfort as a .  The sensation is almost as though they will be tricked out of it, or it will be taken away, or that they just don’t deserve it.

I Think I Might Be Happy

___________________________________________by Heidi Hansen

I think

I might be happy.

A small tiny dot

of glimmer

inside the very middle

of the very middle

pulls at my attention

like puppy at the hem

of my skirt.

A black hole in space

that shines,

afterall,

in the center of orbiting galazies

of uncertainty.

For if nothing is sure,

nothingness becomes a something.

No foes —

Let them attend someone else’s battle.

No fears —

Let them raid someone else’s cupboard.

No anger,

Jettisoned it like a parachute

that refuses to open

correctly.

Amidst all that is

Not Done,

Worries like promises

fail.

Turn off the noise,

obey the puppy who

is unraveling fabric by the yards

and revealing a certain nakedness

of happy.
