Hey young lady, look at you grow! Try not to be so hard on yourself because you didn’t know. Generations before you chose to stay in ignorance, so how does a delicate, intricate flower without nurturing, care and guidance were you supposed to bloom and grow? They chose to live their heaven on earth and did things anyhow, all the while you felt overshadowed and planted in darkness and dirt. But my darling little seedling, in the end you bloomed with a smirk, because you put in the work to bury the traumas and dysfunctions way down in that dirt! Allow the sun to beam into your mind, heart and soul and know that your spirit and your worth has blossomed more than any precious gold.
Melanie, this is so sweetly written. I love this image: “in the end you bloomed with a smirk.” It makes me feel like you got some swagger to you. And whatever happens in life you’re going to push through and do so with a smile. I love the attitude and I love the piece. Thank you for sharing and thank you for being part of The Unsealed. <3 Lauren
To the nouns, unforeseen strangers of my life – people, places and things that has profoundly impacted my life positively, thank you!
As life offers a host of simplicities and complexities, it is certain that it can’t be lived in a linear fashion because it’s to great not to be encountered and explored as a roller coaster of passion.
So to write a letter or poem to a singular stranger is very difficult to do as the nouns of our daily lives, people who may touch our souls, a discovered place that elevates our hearts and minds and the many splendid things yet to unravel, it’s a safe bet to roll the dice of life, guaranteed to be peppered with spice!
