Signs of Life

Signs of Life

This confusing emotion lurks just below the surface

Waves of feeling triggered even by fluff on the telly 

Tiredness and poor concentration that stays 

I’m usually better at this feeling stuff?

It could be sadness, or anxiety, I’m not sure

I’ve not felt anything quite like this before

It’s heavy and scary in some ways but

It also feels normal and necessary maybe

I reckon this might be a sign of life

Like after exercise and your muscles hurt

A good sign, the reward for the effort

The bruises, signs of being alive and healthy

After over a year of unimaginable effort

Maybe this feeling is a good sign

The ache a reward for all the effort

One sign of being alive and healthy
