Be You

“Sometimes I wonder if this well
in my heart will ever run dry.
I’ve carried so much for so long.”

Sometimes I wonder if this well in my heart will ever run dry. I’ve carried so much for what feels like forever. Would I become someone else entirely, if that well ran dry? Maybe I wouldn’t recognize the person I was. Would that really be such a bad thing?

Here’s the thing. We are the sum of everything. From conception to birth to growing up and learning just how difficult life can be. We are a collection. A summary. A life. And no matter what has happened, we bear our scars and shed our tears for as long as we must. And if that means until death, then that is just part of who we are. There are certain things in my life I couldn’t bear to let go. So that means accepting all the good with the bad. All the bits that brought me to this moment.

You are who you are. The good and the bad.
