I don’t think the world is evil but I believe the people around the entire world need help and guidance. I have seen many vibrant colors in an evening sky. I have also seen death because of hatred.
I can go outside and feel the purity of nature but I can also step outside and greet darkness.
I feel so blessed to live on Earth
And yet damned by the swiftness of time.
How can I feel these thoughts all at once? I am happy and yet sadness quietly lingers. The world brings so much color and yet so much tragedy.
Some won’t understand it. Closed in their minds of culture and religion.
But the world- the universe is a gift.
The seas and the sand, the thunder, the cotton candy skies, the trees, the warmth of the sun on my skin, the raindrops on my window, the bright stars at night, the flow of the seasons… it’s all so very beautiful to me.
Life on earth and the ways of humanity are what trouble me. I don’t think the world is evil but I believe the people around the entire world need help and guidance.
When someone you love dies, life changes drastically. That might sound like a no-brainer, but honestly, I did not fully understand it til I lived it.
Today would have been my grandmother’s birthday. If you’ve read any of my other posts, you would know that she lost her battle with cancer about seven months ago. Though she lived what some would consider a long life, it was a heartbreaking goodbye.
How do I honor her life today now that she isn’t here to receive it? This day has never been nor will it ever be just October 10th.
Today is my grandma’s birthday.
I could go on and on about how sad and unfair this day feels but that would only make me angry. I always say that writing cleanses the soul and that is forever my goal. I will not allow death to take away what I know in my heart to be true- my grandma is in a better place and she is no longer suffering the way she was here on this earth.
How I wish I could sit with her and hear her thank God for blessing her with another year. She was a woman of faith and gratitude. She always kept her eyes towards the hills. She was pure gold and I miss her vitality.
This post is for you my angel.
