I am going through
one of the more painful transformations
of my adult life
Each night as I close my eyes,
my stories leave
and fear creeps in to consume me
so sweetly, like a familiar merciless friend
I know it will end —
I know the pain will ease
I know I will wake up someday
to an entirely different reality
I can taste possibilities
and I see grace
even in the most broken parts of me
But I would be lying
if I said this transformation wasn’t excruciating
This reminder was much needed
If like me, you are dancing in the dark,
let this be a reminder that
“you’re not falling apart;
you’re just falling into something different,
with a new capacity to be beautiful”
