Inescapable Lessons

The world always seemed to move too fast and yet, too slow.

Love was there but neither you nor I knew how to show it.

I blame you for not preparing for what life shed upon my bones.

I blame you for allowing me to spread my wings before I was ready to fly.

Shades of gray turned a pure heart into coal.

I was unprepared but I’m glad, because I came out stronger.

Through the trenches I found the light.

Light and love broke through the blackened walls of my heart.

The world always seemed to move too fast and yet, too slow, but I found my own pace and learned to grow.
