The time for rebirth. A balance of light and darkness. New beginnings.
Leaving behind what no longer serves you.
I used to be afraid of darkness. Now I’ve accepted that it will always be a part of life - a part of me. There’s nothing to fear as long as you can keep the peaceful, somber darkness in harmony with the inspiring, uplifting light. They make each other more beautiful.
“So I am not a broken heart.
I am not the weight I lost or miles or ran and I am not the way I slept on my doorstep under the bare sky in smell of tears and whiskey because my apartment was empty and if I were to be this empty I wanted something solid to sleep on. Like concrete.
I am not this year and I am not your fault.
I am muscles building cells, a little every day, because they broke that day,
but bones are stronger once they heal and I am smiling to the bus driver and replacing my groceries once a week and I am not sitting for hours in the shower anymore.
I am the way a life unfolds and bloom and seasons come and go and I am the way the spring always finds a way to turn even the coldest winter into a field of green and flowers and new life.
I am not your fault.”
