I stand
Strong and stalwart
Grinning, laughing
Joking, smiling
But inside it festers
A fear lingers
And grows
And manifests
I fall
Lost and afraid
Crying, weeping
Losing hope

I wrote this very shortly after learning Trump was going to be president. It is not only how I felt, but literal in almost every sense. I didn’t actually fall to the floor, but the following day was filled with a great deal of weeping.
