Reflecting On Twenty-Six Years Of A Life Lived

I have loved.

I have loved to the brink of disaster and beyond it. I have loved to the edge of perfection and then some.

I have lost myself in those closest to me, and discovered myself in the eyes of strangers.

I have been told no. I have said yes.

I have longed for more. I have resisted change.

. . .

I have fought uphill battles, only to slide back down the mountain once I have reached the top.

I have unflinchingly adhered to a structure of my own creation. I have loathed that structure.

I have envied those who capitalize on their eccentricities. I have denied my inner eccentric.

I have encouraged others to follow unique paths, no matter the bends in the road, yet I have doubted my own journey.

. . .

I have thought.

I have realized.

I have grown unafraid.

I have evolved.

. . .

I dance in the rain, I worship great novels, I allow my heart to break over beautiful melodies and unexpected kindness. I am overwhelmed by the strength of expression. I am a student of the light and the dark.

I practice courage.

I choose passion.

I write poetry when it is not my intention.

I am free.

I am unrelenting.
