however

[does any of this depend on me or meyabsence?
when you're writing for introverts, does it really ever matter
about good fortune or coincidence?]

hail mary's, ave maria's, choices and tattoos,
catholic, or distant and filled with doubt, we've all been
heartbroken and filled with every sense,
but we find, we're fine
and we will our way through it everyday.

are we valiant and cavalier?
harboring affection, it's the way we're raised -
to be ashamed of all the ways we feel alive,
but we keep holding on.

we say novenas for the all the people we feel
we've lost, and we're not sure where we lost out -
and you say  apprehension is the sense you can't
ignite, and that's fine

we've all been heartbroken and filled with doubt.

but we find, we're fine
it's our will to to wind through
we're fine
it's our fate, we'll be cavalier
and it helps us.

we will our way through it every day.
