DARKNESS TO LIGHT
When I broke free from my shell, when I emerged with nowhere to go, no one to see, clinging onto some tangible belief that I could perhaps make it in the end, was what sustained me when I witnessed the destruction of a soul. And I understand the power and pain of solitude, how brokenness gives birth to beautiful art, beautiful words, beautiful songs, a beautiful moment that only a few times in life presents itself, majestic in its fullness. Yet eventually, this peak of life is flawed, for it too subsides and crumbles, rolling away like pebbles on a rocky mountain. And those of you who understand that the sheer thrill is in embracing the light after having spent eternity in darkness; who simply cry because such warmth, such an epiphany is so potent and powerful, we cannot help but be overcome by its raw magnificence. And the pains of the world, shrink away, and we are made new again. Ready for another chance.
