remember when you’d dream so freely your body nearly lifted up into the cosmos? remember when everything felt possible because it was only the beginning? remember the certainty you held for a life filled with travel and discovery? of love so deep and strong, it will hold the whole of you? remember being unapologetic with your desires because they were the biggest part of your heart? remember now, that child within whose heart is the very one encased in your body still. remember the way your voice sounds. the shake of it when your speaking something true. the way it cracks and moans and howls for all things real. remember believing in this moment right here? how there is nowhere to go and no one to become. only you. here. now. alive.
