Passages

I can’t sleep.

My alarm will go off in six hours. I’m working a full day. I SHOULD be in bed. But my mind won’t slow down. You see one of my aunties died this weekend. It was sudden and I’m still in shock. Three out of seven of my Grandma’s children are now dead. All three of them were under the age of 55. It scares me. It makes all sorts of irrational thoughts run through my mind. I truly feel for my cousins and the pain they are going through. It’s extremely unsettling. Every day we get up, assuming things will go on as they always do. But the passing of my aunt reminds me that IT is coming for me one day, and I can’t escape it.
