Sometimes winter really sucks.
Your skin gets dry and your lips get chapped.
And you walk with a slight shuffle
out of constant fear of falling down.
Which makes you feel like you're ancient.
it can be the most beautiful thing.
And I'm reminded of why we live here.
And why, if you can look beyond the discomfort
you can see all the beauty that is out there.
Frozen, waiting, but still alive.
