Now what? What is next? You have done the seeking, the crying, the longing. The reflecting, the learning, the unlearning. What happens now? you ask yourself, first thing in the morning, and before closing your eyes at night. Beyond the immeasurable pain you’re feeling now. Beyond the emptiness. Beyond the ocean of tears, and dry lands of indifference. Beyond the shell of your former self, that place you have long abandoned but visit often, seeking something. Beyond yesterday, and the yesterdays before. Beyond all of that lies your answer.
