I've sat in silence for a while now. Contemplating my life, the things I've been blessed with, the things I've lost and the way life has it's timing, symmetry, cohesions and small details that, if you're paying close enough attention, will show you with clarity where you belong, where your heart is at peace, your mind at ease, and all is as it should be. Things have their ways of turning upside down, inside out, pushing you to & fro... if you let the ebb & flow guide you... the secrets reveal themselves, however tiny, insignificant and transparent they may be. In this place I've bound myself, found myself and freed myself from the burdens of my past, my ego, my hurt and my pain. I've had people come & go in this time, just as quickly as the changes are taking place, the relationships are consistently ebbing & flowing... some are tethered some have drifted. It's what is right, as you cannot make all those you meet truly understand you. It doesn't mean that it makes it any easier to move on. There is still love for those temporary friendships, lovers & confidants, even if it is not reciprocated. As for myself, I've learned to let go as a right of passage. Those who you do not serve and do not serve you to each your fullest potentials...are in the end just another distraction from the overall experience. In this place I've found the dream, I've been beaten down , challenged, called upon, cradled, built up and what can only be described as reborn. I am the best version of myself & only getting better. I don't know who will read this and understand their part, or even realize that they too have been a catalyst in this 'rebirth' that I am evermore grateful for, but thank you. To anyone whom has been part of my life, good or bad, here or afar. Thank you. I'm forever grateful for your role in my growth.
