Letter from your future self

You will have new muscles soon
that you hadn’t used much before
but they will be yours and they will be powerful

because you will be resourceful and tough
and yet softer than ever

you will have endurance
quiet and steady as a climber
or even the mountain itself

you will be able to wrap yourself in a magic quilt
made of squares of faces on a screen

don’t you see

you will fight loneliness and fear
and it’s not that they will never return

it’s that you will always know
if they try to board your boat again
you just have to keep paddling towards tomorrow
and you will never sink.
