That day when…

that day when


You set the bar so high no one can achieve it…

Not even you.

You lay there awake at three, four, five am

Asking yourself – “Have I failed yet?”

You watch other people and wonder

What’s it like to be you?

Their life stories unravelling at the touch of your imagination.

The thoughts that you would never share,

The questions that haunt and don’t let go.

But then it wouldn’t be your life.

Someday you will find your heart

And the only biggest strongest gesture that matters right now is the hug you give yourself


that day when

  1. Zhenya, this post! Whatever struggle you have in your heart right now…you seem to have the right attitude in dealing with it. And sharing it without shame is so important, too. I will be thinking of you.


  2. This is so beautiful, dear. You’re such a great writer and a beautiful human being. I love you so much.
