Room to grow.

Post by Closeyclo » Thu Feb 07, 2019 3:11 pm

You thought they left you empty.
But an empty soul can only ever mean extra room to let in love.
More space for kindness and compassion.
Confronting the darkness only ever made you want to let in the light.
And shine it on everyone else.
You took in all their cold, and warmed it with fires you'd forgotten were burning.
It took for you to feel that pain to know your strength.
No superhero engages their powers without prior trauma.
No butterfly emerged without being trapped in a cocoon.
No rainbow was every created without rain.
Nothing beautiful ever comes from ease.
There's a sunrise on the horizon and your time is coming.
You can't see the wood for the trees but you're reaching the end of the darkness.
And you find all the best views when you're lost.
Soon, you'll see the sun.
It will reflect your eyes and light your path.
That bumpy road, full of stumbles.
But flowers don't grow in concrete.
Don't believe for a second that the emptiness they left you with is negative.
It just gave you all the more room to grow.
A champion is defined not by their wins but by how they can recover when they fall.
