Personal (Hope)

Some times I need a long shower

to wipe off the tar of daily life

that sticks to me.


It's black and gritty,

caked on by sweat and tears.


It's crazy what a shower can do 

to not only your body 

but also to your mind.


As soon as the warm water 

hits my scalp,

it cleanses me 

inside and out.


My skin is washed clean;

my thoughts cleared 

as tears pool in the drain.


I step out refreshed

in more ways than one.
