ROOTS

Darling, you’ve been to hell and back.

For a tree’s branches to reach to heaven,

it must have roots grasping the brinks of hell –

Give yourself a break and cut yourself some slack.

Transcend your own shadows and step into the light.

You’ll climb from your pit and scale mountains of the greatest heights.

A wise man once told me to go quiet and never quit.

The top is only told in tales of those that don’t simply sit.
