Opened eyes.
A new beginning.
Who could dream of such?
Who could ever imagine?
Pressure building.
Release it slowly.
None can fight this off.
No one can cope with this.
A smile grows.
What is this?
Happiness is too uncommon.
No such thing is possible.
Yet it grows.
And laughter.
Shrieks of horrid disbelief.
Forbidden happiness alive?
A tear slips.
A single tear.
Surely in misery and pain.
Surely in discontented grief.
But no.
Not in sorrow.
A tear fallen from pure joy.
A realization of true hope.
More laughter.
Honest laughter…
What smile can live in such pain?
But who said pain had to stay?
