What's Worth Finding
I understand why we get stuck sometimes.
Hearts are stubborn.
They sink their hooks into bad habits that look like beautiful people
But look at how much we give of ourselves.
Our most precious gifts handed over to another
who may or may not
value them as much as we do.
Have you ever heard someone fall asleep?
Or watched someone break down?
There's so few people in this world with whom you can share
breakfast at midnight,
and who can forgive you completely.
The people that get you to believe it's actually all worth it,
and don't flinch when you look them in the eyes.
They never waver,
and make you feel comfortable in your own bed.
So in a way,
when you find them,
you find yourself.
And in a way,
when you lose them,
you lose yourself.
But know this:
You will always be too much for someone not enough for another.
Somewhere out there
is one who will bring pieces of you home.
And you'll realize that losing everything
is the only way to figure out what's worth finding.
