As the wind blows across sand, rocks, and driftwood I marvel at the change within me that I am aware of.
Time has not softened the being, but strengthened through experiences and exposure to a world so scary as a child.
Reaching out beyond the close-knit sphere I sought to understand the blood and tears of others.
Reaching within I sought to understand myself and my place in the world.
What was my purpose here?
A struggle developed to find a balance as fragments continued to stack higher and higher.
The mind seeks continuous interactions, energy, connections to keep the fire burning, but this fire will burn if not controlled, if not kept within a moral framework.
How then to make a difference, to find balance, to not proposer at the expense of others? Through time and experience I had to learn empathy and respect. The silence we hear through chaos and the peace we feel through balance, teaches empathy and respect as the world you see circles around and in the middle a portal opens revealing the threads connecting us to everything and everyone.
