Did You Know



Did You Know

Did you know

It’s a 13-meter descent

Into my brain

And there are no ropes or footholds

I find myself

Lost

Alone

Stuck in the well

Sometimes


Did you know

My heart is 5 pounds and 27 inches around

It’s so big and heavy in my chest

All of the time

I find myself

Loving

Hurting

Overloaded with the weight

Often


Did you know

The distance between who I was and who I am is not as much as the distance between who I am and who I want to be

But yesterday I still walked

27 miles closer to myself

I find myself

Running

Stumbling

Hitchhiking through my growth

Everyday


Did you know

That we are made of stars

The universe made us

And there is another universe within us

I find myself

Searching

Exploring

Learning every planet and constellation

Always
