Impossible Right Now

Catharsis is impossible right now. Clarity is impossible right now. Loving family feels impossible right now. Apologies are impossible right now. Normalcy is impossible right now. Sunlight may be impossible right now. Reckoning feels impossible right now. Revolutionizing feels impossible right now. Community is impossible right now. Healing feels impossible right now. Contact feels impossible right now. Cohesiveness is impossible right now. People are impossible right now. It’s all so damn impossible right now. Breathing sounds impossible. Speaking. Living. All impossible right now. Unity, creativity, collectivity are all impossible right now. Is impossibility impossible right now? Waiting is impossible right now. Action feels impossible even when it’s possible. “I” am impossible right now. The impossible me with the impossible dreams. All right now. (Im)possible. I’m possible. Please.

What, for you, is impossible right now? Let me know!

(Small side note: have you ever written a word so much that when you look at it you question what that word really is? That was me writing “impossible” so many times.)
