I sat in the dark, listening to music crying.
It wasn’t an expression of sadness; it was an expression of emotion.
I’d spent the last year trying to engage with my emotions.
It was something that I had shut off for so long.
I could now turn it on, almost like a tap. Tears, abundant in appropriate circumstances.
Where once it was in a line, on a bus, at a desk.
Now, i’d learnt how to release. How to accept, recognise and feel.
It wasn’t the solution to my problems. But I accepted that it was a step. A step towards humanity.
