It feels funny how the years already slip by now. From what I hear it only gets more strange and slippery as we go.

Reading through my notes from last year hits hard. Nothing worth sharing for now. Those thoughts I will keep to myself and save for another time.

But what I will say is what I’m reminded of in seemingly seeing the same day a year a part. And that is it’s okay to not be okay.

As long as you keep going — there’s a light up ahead.

Somewhere.

There’s blood in these veins I have never bled
Tears that have never run
That & more
Plenty to spare for friends,
Beggars, and anyone in between
No sense in saving it all
So, cut right here, my love
Blood first, tears second
Take your offering
Take pleasure in my pain
I sure do

I want to write the words I wish were written for me. For those dark moments I kept to myself and insisted on standing alone — even though I never really was.
