you can’t be afraid of pain- of heartbreak-
because this is inevitable.
your heart will break.
and you will break other’s hearts.
people, places, and even yourself – will break you.
but this is inevitable.
this is part of the cocoon of life
and one day – these events – these losses and gains
will encase you
and you will be forever changed
and when you break through to the sunlight
you will find the truest and most comfortable form of yourself
