Change Is the Only Way

I’ve learned to never stay down too long

I get back up, I pick myself up

I smile

Not a fake smile, not a pasted on smile

An assured smile

Because life keeps turning

I keep learning

Change is the only way I know how to grow

Maybe I like the pain now

It inspires me, it motivates me, it moves me

So I look up at the Sun

And I drink in the beauty of this broken thing we call life

And know in my heart

It was not a mistake, it never is, it was the process

And I trust the process

It takes me where I need to be

When I’m too wrapped up in what I want it to be

Every time I fall

It’s the vast sky I look up to see

And I know life has a long road ahead for me

Even in the darkness

There’s such beauty

So raw, so real, so deep

And I realize I was too distracted to see

What was right there in front of me
