First thing that comes to mind is… life goes on
And then time seems to move quite quickly
The things you begin to appreciate are vast
The way light seeps through the window sill, onto the staircase, and trickles down like water
The way the palms stand, bend and sway but never break
It’s all just beauty. Pain too.
For the palm to stand here today and the light to cast it’s glow, they both had to travel through time, endure changes, face obstacles
If there could be heart break for something as simple as light, it would be the pity of never leaving it’s burning ball of fire, to never cast its ever changing warmth upon our faces
For a palm it could be to never experience just being a seed, then one day sprouting up and up, only to endure the storms and winds that shape the way it stands now
The trees and the light, do we see more than they do?
We all have our gifts to give
Life goes on
This is how it feels to be 22
