Letters to my future self

Three envelopes waiting to be filled

Letter number one to the girl who fears she is slipping

Peering over the edge into the darkness of ink

Courage, dear heart

The darkness has never overcome the pinprick light

Letter number two

To the girl who wants to flee

To taste nothingness now, to leave this pain behind

Stay, stay, stay

Find the solace of arms around you

Letter number three to the girl far from home

Courage, the kindness of strangers

The wisdom of trees

Colour, cook, rest, create

You will find home again.
