DECLINE

By Dorota Chioma

Mental wellness,

An apex of a mountain

Climbing up is time consuming and burdened with effort.

Falling down happens rapidly and with ease.

Decline is like falling.

Instinctively you try to hold on to something.

In the hope of floating on the surface until the rescue,

But if nothing happens to be in your reach,

Then you fall deeper and faster into the abyss.

It gets darker.

It gets cooler.

It seems to go on for infinity.

It is ghastly.

It is void.

It is deserted.

It is a nightmare on repeat.

It makes you estranged.

It makes you forsaken.

It makes you hollow.

And at some point there is no you...
