Sunshine rains down on me

I laugh. I smile

The breeze tickles me

Peace. Happiness

Air moves hair across my face

Soft. Whispering

Father speaks to me quietly

Both aside and above me

Looking up I sigh

Life is-

Blackness

Eyes cracking open

Needles. Machines. Pain

Life changes

It is no longer happy

No longer peaceful

Why?

Anger. Loneliness

Frustration

Everything is different

Sound. Smell. Taste. Sight

Hatred burns

The Father whispers in my head

Hope

It's not over

Happiness. Peace

All is possible

I am different

Life was shattered

It was broken

Key word

Was

Sunshine rains down again

My eyes twinkle

And I smile

Finally
