the desert.

food used to taste like a dry desert before the rain,
until i allowed myself to drink from clean waters.
oxygen didn’t exist until the winds were followed up with her kiss.
i’ve always wanted & i have had to learn
to be content with what was given,
so much to the point that i gave up
seeking out anything better.
i found myself content to stand still in a world
that kept me in a state of frenzy for most of my life.
i am walking through the past toward the future & realizing that i am less afraid than the girl i was before.
