So easy

Filed under: Personal — Chinmayi @ 5:51 pm

So easy to sit with your legs dangling on the arm of an armchair. To go to a nice restaurant and have a delectable ham and orange sauce meal with wine. To keep warm when it is cold and cool when it is warm. To kneel and scrub the kitchen floor. To drag a friend to a concert when you need cheering up. To get a job well above minimum wage. To breathe. To run. To be proud.

I wonder how long it lasts. How easy it is to fall on the other side – with a stabbing pain when I lift my leg, with not enough to eat. How it will be to struggle to breathe, to have to forget about pride and settle for whatever’s thrown my way. The idea is terrifying.
