The little things.
Everything was great, until the alarm hit.
A new day.
First it’s dark, then comes the light, then it gets dark again.
Nothing changes. It’s a cycle.
The same people, the same conversations, the same work.
As time passes, energy leaves the body until you fall into bed again.
But today there was a smile. Very brief but present. 2 happy seconds shared with a stranger.
It’s the little things, as you fall asleep waiting for the next beep sound with excitement.
