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.
