I helped myself.
wiped my own tears.
put balm over fresh wounds.
plastered parts of my heart that still were hurting.
gave myself time.
read books that soothed my soul.
heard music that calmed my nerves.
watched movies that made me smile.
bit by bit, piece by piece, I put
myself back together again.
and I gave myself a second chance
because I know that if I didn’t,
In that dark storm, I encountered a small ship. While pushing me forward, the ship said, “Can’t you see that light?” This wondrous ship, which never lost its way even in the darkness, danced its way across the huge waves. The ship didn’t resist the tides, instead it sailed ahead despite the strong headwinds. Then, the ship pointed out and said, “Look! There’s the light!”
The question hung in the air. Several creatures glanced at each other uncertainly; is there an answer?
“Perhaps someone should, as it seems no one has.”
“I will.” Said one purple alien. “I’m sure nothing is wrong. She is likely just sleeping, or something else human-like.”
The creature left.
The others returned to their activites - monitor the ship, read a book of some sort, or playing a game from their home planet.
It was only a few moments later that a horrified scream came from the halls. Immediately, every creature in the room dropped what they were doing to run to the source of the sound.
What they found was the purple creature standing, shaking, in the doorway of the human’s quarters.
“What is it? What is the problem?” An orange creature cried.
“Th-The human is going to die!”
“I am not dead!” Came the human’s protest. “I’m not dying either! Why did you scream?”
The creatures quickly flooded into the room, only to gasp in shock. A yellow one in the back of the crowd fainted.
“What are you DOING?” The Captain yelled.
“I was getting a drink and then Purple over here came in and-”
“YOU WERE DRINKING THAT?!” The green creature turned a gentle shade of white.
“Uh, yeah?” The human glanced at the bottle in her hands. “It’s just water.”
“How could you do this to us!” A pink creature sobbed. “We thought you enjoyed being on our ship!”
“I-I do? What makes you think I don’t?”
“You were trying to poison yourself, you dwarf planet!” The Captain searched frantically for a med-kit. “Do we have poison antidotes in our kits?”
“This isn’t poison! It’s water! I drink it all the time!”
“Why would you do that?! To build an immunity?”
“No! Humans drink water all the time! We need it to survive.”
“Humans drink water everyday. If we don’t we will die. About seventy-percent of the human body is made of water. Or it might be eighty-percent, I’m not entirely sure. Anyway, water gives us strength and energy. We literally HAVE to have it.”
The crew was in shock. There was no movement for a second, then the Captain raised his arm and opened his log. The others listened while he spoke.
“Captain’s log, day 28 with the human crewmate; humans drink poison on a daily basis. Our study of the human becomes more questionable each day. The human claims that all humans drink poison everyday, because it makes them thrive, and without it they would die. I am confident it will take more than one journey around the galaxy to understand humans even a small bit. Over.”
