Change of Perspective
Having had to live my life the last few years, seeing the world from this perspective which I've placed myself into, has changed the person I once was.|
I hold onto a dream that believes one day I will be able to pick-up the pieces of my old life, and just go...anywhere.
I possess the fortunate ability to create distance between myself and any other human being, which has kept me safe, at the expense of the relationships I had hoped to build on, or in the very least, keep.
Holding onto tomorrow's knowing there will be less of them than yesterday's, is a burden I accept, and a penance I've earned having stumbled from grace.
What I will lose here in this life was never mine, nor is it mine to keep with me. My soul will take with it only the lessons I have learned, offering up my life in return for forgiveness.
It is a journey I will make time and again, an infinite cycle that I accept, in order to become forgiven for the things I have done, and the things I will do, until my soul has found the way home.
