just like that
know how to
chase the clouds away.
The time of your life
(that’s what they say)
And some time to clear your mind.
Just like the sea started with a single drop,
a book started with a first sentence,
your future starts with a small step.
It has taken me some time.
But now I’m starting to get.
That I am who I am and the world is the world.
That some friction is fine.
My silence clashing with the roaring world.
Listen. Can you hear? My heart. It’s beating.
Come sit with yourself,
just for a moment.
Put an arm around your waist,
your head on a shoulder.
Be kind to yourself,
as you would to others.
Just for a moment,
come sit with yourself.
Be courageous. Hold on. Hold tight.
Being together. Just because. No words necessary.
Letting our silence do the talking. Together.
You are not alone. Get inspired by other students' stories about vulnerability and doubt. But above all about the power of connectedness.
