Words are hard to describe feelings,
I have always been better with images.

But you know all of this and it won't change anything, that's what I am learning within time,
Writing to tell you how much I have learned, to show you that through fragility I become a stronger person
More able to understand, more able to listen and to care,
Hurt through loss, I've become yet a wiser person
