This Is For You

This is for you.

What is something that no one will know
but everyone will see?

Your Pain.

This is for you.

We have life so inside out
so backwards
so upside down
and we’re so sure…

This is for you.

Can you feel it…
your pain
like the bottom of a lake
like the potential of fire
Do you know who you are?

This is for you.

The trauma of being born
is the first trauma
and we spend our whole life recovering.

The trauma of thinking we know
what pain is
is the second trauma
and we spend our whole life embracing

And yet…
we are still

This is for you.

And there are only two types of people
those who are old enough to understand that there is no viable answer
and those who aren’t yet old enough.

This is for you.

Let yourself be crushed.
and find yourself.
Invite the crushing
and go explore.

I’m proud of you
and I’d follow you anywhere!

This is for you.
