they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

faith.

and then the rain came --
flooding, suffocating rain.
and it poured for years, not days --
for nights and mornings
and during that part of the day where you just wish you could get a break;
but instead
goulashes are required
and umbrellas that stand up to high wind
and humidity...
and this rain -
this pounding, wet
storm
that blindsided you, really
right at the moment you thought
things would be
okay.
---it washed away clarity
and peace
and understanding
and it waterlogged
grace
and hope
and health
and then, it made muddy
healing
and love
and eternity.
but after the storm,
the sun crept from behind
that black cloud that'd been in the sky
for years and a day
and the light it spread
was contagious,
infectious
showing truth and love
and the answer to every storm - faith.

    QUIT MAKING ME CRY.

    Have you seen "Into the Wild"? If not, you need to. I think you would like it, really like it.
