The Vivid Beating Of Your Own Heart

That day,

when you realize that you can’t lie to yourself anymore,

you remember everything clearly.

The lighting in the room,

the song that is playing,

the way that the carpet feels on your hands.

It is like watching yourself from the sky.

And So It Is Choice, Not Obligation

To fall into yourself

is the most enlightening

and beautiful place to fall.

Because once you have,


you can fall safely into other things, too.

Bringing gentleness into pain,

adding softness into uncertainty,

knowing that these outside things are not going to break you.

Because you have your truth.

The one that tells you

that no matter the circumstance,

you will always have yourself.
