I sit alone in a dark room. I wonder what would have happened if I had taken the chance. Had I jumped at the opportunity, would my life be different? I stayed. I chose otherwise. Pushing my heart’s desire back, I thought I made the right choice.
Years passed. I read the books and memorized the visuals. I recall every feeling I had when the words charred my being. I didn’t look back. I didn’t think this day would come. Rising to the occasion, I consciously decided that you were mine. My past, present and future. I needed no advice to steer my direction. You spoke in a lullaby that soothed my broken pieces.
Today I stand tall, filled with chaos. I strive for much more than I dreamt. There were bumps along my path which I believed to be a sign. Something to show me direction. Understanding that one light was all that I required, that light is mine.
