The Thing She Carries

Emma carries her mattress wherever she goes.

Sometimes people help her carry it.
Sometimes they call her names for dragging that thing out in public.

She carries it anyway.

She carries it without expectation.  She carries it because it is with her always, anyways.

Emma is healing and allowing us to see her healing.

"It's been a week now, and it already feels a little lighter," she says.
"I’m getting used to it; I’m getting stronger.”
