New Awakening

There is something about changing. 

It is the realization of who you’ve become and who you want to be.

It took me a long time to open my eyes to something I didn’t want to accept. 

Change isn’t a bad thing. 

I’m not losing anything, I’m letting it go. 

There is no emptiness inside me, only room for more. 

I’ve been lost for so long and now I’ve finally found myself. 

 

I thought I was being strong bottling up all my emotions and finding comfort in myself. 

I’ve blamed the world for the problems I’ve created in my mind. 

It is not working out or studying hard that makes you strong. 

It’s your own mind. 

 

I don’t want to be alone anymore. 

I need to be smart and strong, but I also need to be honest, selfless, and kind. 

Lately, I haven’t been any of those things, to others or to myself. 

 

Life isn’t one short term goal after another, or at least it shouldn’t be. 

It isn’t just simple stepping stones, it’s a waterfall that never stops flowing. 

You can stay down at the bottom and take your time jumping from rock to rock, or you can climb all the way up to jump to the life that’s waiting for you. 

 

I’ve been searching for something in everything around me; books, movies, people, places, myself… I didn’t know what it was, but I’ve finally found it. 

I cannot put it into words, yet, but I’ve found it.

 

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world

The height of enlightenment rarely stays with us, but it is a privilege I believe everyone should be reminded of.
