This anxiety is not my own So why do I entertain it? Why do I let it take every breath out of me? I know there is a line But where is it? Where is the line that separates me from Chaos and the sublime? My heart is too involved My heart can't distinguish between my grief and grief that is not my own. They are all melded into one with no distinction. I panic as if it were my own I need to let it go I need to be still and not try to fix it. I need to hide under the covers to escape.
Forgiveness is letting go of the hope that the past could have been any different --Unknown
