Day 3: unclutch

You look at the seams of your hands
Red, weak, tired of holding on
You’ve stretched too thin
Held on too strong
You invested your being into hanging on
But you see the thing about holding on too long is
You lose function in other parts
As time goes on you begin to wonder the viability of it all
If its worth all your time
Your arms begin to ache, to falter and your grip loosens
Silent tears stream down your eyes as you slowly unhook it
One finger at a time
Feeling the release of tension from your strained fingers
And you realise as you let go with your hands eventually your heart will follow
With slow uneven steps eventually you’ll learn to unclutch.
