I came across the loveliest of poems:
One day when you wake up,
you will find that you’ve become a forest.
You’ve grown roots and found strength in them
that no one thought you had.
You have become stronger and more beautiful,
full of life giving qualities.
You have learned to take all the negativity around you
and turn it into oxygen for easy breathing.
A host of wild creatures live inside you
and you call them stories.
A variety of beautiful birds nest inside your mind
and you call them memories.
You have become an incredible
self sustaining thing of epic proportions.
And you should be so proud of yourself,
of how far you have come from the seeds of who you used to be.
