What's Worth Finding

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
and dreams.
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.

Let Her Run #9

Let Her Run #9

Somewhere between what she survived
and who she was becoming
was exactly where she was meant to be.
She was beginning to love the journey
and find comfort
in the quietest corners
of her wildest dreams.

They say people don't change.
she wasn't always this way.
Even if she didn't change the entire world,
she would change her part of it.
And she would affect those she shared it with.

A butterfly
whose wings have been touched
can indeed still fly.
Whether something was meant to be
or meant to leave
no longer mattered as so much.

She would soak up the sun,
kiss the breeze,
and she would fly
