Throwback Thursdays

It’s Throwback Thursday

On the internet world

(Which has now become the whole world)

Swiping and tapping and posting and hashtagging

Thousands will plaster their memories

On screens and Newsfeeds for all to enjoy

But what about the not so happy Thursdays?

The Thursdays marked by tears and questions and why Gods?

What about the Thursdays nobody talks about?

What about the Thursdays when you didn’t get out of bed

Because the doubt you carried within you

Was too heavy

Was unbearable

What about the Thursdays when you observed the world around you in silence

Because the fear you fought within you

Was too strong

Was unconquerable

What about the Thursdays when you laughed to keep from crying

Because the grief you hid within you

Was begging to be noticed

Was screaming for attention

What about those Thursdays?

You’re alive

All of you

Even the hard and calloused parts

Even the tender and broken parts

Alive for another Thursday

Throwback to the Thursdays you never thought would end

Throwback your head and your heart and laugh and cry

Honor the Thursdays when you just survived

Honor the Thursdays when you fought for your life

Your sanity, your freedom, your dignity, yourself

Throwback to the Thursdays that broke you

That wrecked you, that saved you, that made you

Throwback to the Thursdays that brought you here

To this Thursday
