We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free.

I sit before flowers
hoping they will train me in the art
of opening up

I stand on mountain tops believing
that avalanches will teach me to let go

I know
nothing

but I am here to learn.

It was simply a chapter in my life that had closed, and the ending seemed appropriate … We were right to go our separate ways, and I know we’re both better for it — even if we can’t pinpoint exactly why.

What is heartbreak? It’s when you thought you had forever on the clock, and the other person decided to stop time. It’s everything, and then nothing, a cold hand, and silence on the other end of the phone. Wanting to say good morning, but instead, having to greet the day, and everyday, with no one around. It’s the knot in the back of your throat, the warmth and stickiness that a tear leaves on your cheek; but in the end, it’s growth, and weakness learning to be strong.
