A Collective Journal is an ongoing community project to create a space for the community to write, express, and share.
All this year I thought I was the strong one,
was above hitting rock bottom.
Until rock bottom hit me,
leveled me to the ground.
On the mornings I wake without crying,
I peer inside at what pain has opened up
and wonder —
What beautiful thing will be put together from the wreckage?
What I look forward to most is the opportunity to once again see a stranger smile.
