The first time I screamed,
I stopped when I felt guilty.
The sixteenth time, I stopped
when I felt like I’d gone mad.
The hundredth time, I screamed ’til I felt
I’d shown myself to be too insane to come back from it,
so I just kept screaming, until I recalled
that the only thing insane or wrong about this was that I kept trying,
and so as I’d reclaimed my days,
I reclaimed my nights.

Very cool, and I’m a big fan of Aaron Dessner!
