“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”

So many thoughts
Swirling in the back of my head
Pounding, pounding
Trying to break through
I push them back

One moment
A diamond in the ruff
Total, utter, peace

Sitting on top of a grassy hill,
Looking out into the distance
Over a river, through the trees
The sun setting
A curve of gold

Laying on a hearth
Crackling, scented, warmth
A fire next to me
A pine tree in the far corner
The glow of a home

Running, sprinting
Dodging drops as I go
Street lights illuminating their every movie
The street suddenly slick, soaking in loveliness
Dancing, twirling, as free as could be
Through the storm

I chose to push them away
In these moments
I was free, unattached
To the things holding me down
There was peace
