A neat little package deal of metaphors, it was the reply to the questions I had been asking for over 15 years. Lastly, I knew, certainly, why I had gotten sick, again and again.

Displaying me the place I had shut down. Portray the image I wanted to see to lastly get up from my ache.

Once I noticed all of them collectively, they revealed the divine map I wanted to heal from the trauma I had skilled a few years earlier, once I misplaced my sister to suicide.

Or as a good heaviness within the shoulders, for somebody who feels as if she carries the world on her shoulders.
