The Edge of the year

Mystifying, Complexity, Hopeful.

These are the words built into this skyline.

A testament to how far we’ve come as a societal force –

such force creating immense distractions to our commitments.

Endless opportunity. Loud interruptions. Ingrained acceptance.

Until it quiets.

_

And its you standing there with you.

This year silenced some of the chaos I never got to.

Thinking some of the confusion I felt was normal and part of a season.

Telling myself a story that my wants weren’t as important as my needs.

Mystified by connection, losing light within myself.

Until no longer.

_

This year has given me friendships to remind me how far I’ve come.

Support systems that matter.

Motivation.

Conversations to discuss complexities.

Books holding my hand.

_

The year had me trapped in two rooms of my apartment.

Words written on mirrors, journals full of rewriting

my story

my goals

my wants

My Hopes.

Command.

_

I’ve never been so many places in the same place.

This year happened for a reason.

Be still.

Your mind can win. It can take you where you need to be.

To hope.

_

Be still

And let the vision become  

Your Light.

_

The skyline makes no promises.

The force is inside of you.

You make all the promises.

The rest is background noise.

Stand tall.
