I Know Too

“I know, love. I know how much
it hurts, but one day
you will be okay.”

I know, love. I know how much it hurts to be backed into a corner. To be forced to break your own heart for the sake of everyone else. To bear the weight of the losses, so no one else has to. I know. I’ve been there. I’ve carried the same burdens. And one day, it won’t feel so heavy. You’ll know, it was worth the wait. It was worth the journey. Despite the losses. Despite the heartache. After everything, you’ll be free. That is the day you’ll finally fly.

You’ll fly again.
Your wings won’t be
clipped forever.
