12/9/18 | Beauty
Life was always a finite process.
You are alive
And then you are dead.
And the memories in-between encompass all the years
Of believing life was infinite.
The feeling of being limitless
With momentary lucidity
To remind us that we are human
And to remind us that this infinite time is not as it would appear.
There are so many questions I still have
That I don’t know the answers to
And I want to find those answers desperately
Yet I don’t know if I will ever find them.
I found the answers that I didn’t seek out
And as a result of that, the path I’m on is a little different than where I started
Your path is a little different now, too.
It’s a challenging one
It’s a scary one
It’s a dark one
But there is light around you and you don’t have to look hard to see it
It’s in her smile
It’s in his touch
It’s in all the times she says that she loves you
The fear I once possessed takes on a different form now
And I’m sure you are scared, too
We are all scared
But this is how life goes
It forces us to think of all of those memories we made during all those years
And feel them a little harder
To think of them a little more fondly
And to cherish the memories that are still bound to happen.
Because there will still be memories
And they will be filled with love
Just like the ones before
Releasing all the fear and embracing the light around you
Is one of the easiest things to do
Amidst this darkness.
This life, in all its beauty
And all its sadness
Reminds us that each day wasn’t taken for granted
And each breath was cherished.
So, remember this life for the beauty it was, it is, and what it will be
Because that beauty will always be infinite.
