I will remember the love you give freely. The time you gifted me without needing anything in return. The way you held me like a small bird in your agile arms and let me cry for hours without knowing a reason- as if the ocean were spilling through me. I’ll always remember the way you write me stories and spill dreams that are woven by the fingers of your beautiful mind. A mind that did not come from this world. The only mind that truly knows me. You know the angels and the beasts residing within me. You see the way they battle inside day by day. You understand the language I speak in corners of my mind and remind me of its meaning when I forget.
don’t let life force you into appreciating every breath. be grateful for everything you are before you stand on the edge of losing yourself. you can plunge into your fears. you can let yourself crumble and face them. don’t linger in those corners, they’ll swallow you whole. they’ll turn your cells against you.
savor every breath. every spec of light. even the depth of darkness. you have been reminded of how life could end. your cells are fighting for you to take notice. fight for life. go beyond survival and flourish.
Suddenly a light flashed within as if lightning had struck. She knew she had a choice. A choice to take each fleeting moment and turn it into something perfect. A choice to take every blow as if she were a piece of iron in the process of being formed into a sculpture . The flames would no longer burn, only shape her into the beautiful form she was meant to become.
