I see the world through new eyes tonight. I lift the veil and look to the stars. Beyond fear and loneliness, into the heavens. I am but a speck in the vastness of it all. Just one tiny light among the infinite. Sometimes we shine bright, but all lights must dim. It began with a dream, shared with two. Of a mountain and what lay within. A future to avoid at all costs. A remembrance for the fallen and a cry for justice. I didn’t know what it meant for the longest time. The embodiment of what I had to become. I fought so hard to stop that dream, more than I had for anything in my life. I fought to save him. But I couldn’t. The sands of time made sure he was not a part of what I tried to save. Maybe one day I will see it as a protection, as some grand plan designed to keep him safe from harm. But for now, a tear falls down my cheek as I drift helpless into the night. I pray it is not too late, that I can find it. Not what I thought I wanted, but what I must give. I didn’t seek a truth to heal but to destroy. Did any of it matter? In the end, I walk alone, more than ever before. With no direction, I walk. Away. A farewell of sorts.
White shores, and beyond, a far green country and a swift sunrise.
