I found happiness when I let it go.
Like a butterfly letting go of her cocoon,
before she even knew
what it meant
I found happiness when I stopped chasing it.
Like a horse who spends her days chasing sunsets,
only to surrender,
to the view in which she stood.
Because when she stared into that golden field,
wild and free,
she discovered how effortless it was to breathe.
I found happiness when I embraced change.
Like a feather afloat in the sky,
frayed, and sparkling beneath the sunlight.
It never fights the direction of its journey.
Instead, it understands.
Quietly - softly
dancing with grace to the rhythm of the wind.
I found happiness when I learned to live beyond my fear.
When I fought all of my tomorrows
with the breath of today.
I buried my worries, placing flowers on their graves.
The epitaph of a once dismantled heart read,
Your soul is free. Go live.
