I feel lightness.

Like my soul
has been unchained...

A simple thought
changed everything.

My obsession
consumed me,
blinded and scarred me.

But it's all gone now.
Like it never even existed.

The unbearable weight
of sadness
fell off like
a heavy armor.

I feel like a butterfly
as it finally detaches
from its cocoon
and takes flight.

Or like a bird
that with a final push,
bursts out
of its shell.

the world is there!

And though I know
that my entire life
is just the blink of an eye
in the infinite of time...

I stake my claim.

I am here, now.

And I live abundantly.
