In The Midst of Darkness, I’ll Not Lose Myself

Sometimes darkness kicks in and you forget the things you’ve worked so hard to believe in and maintain!

In the midst of darkness and a broken heart, I still want to be the one who cares too much.

Be the one who wears my heart on my sleeve because I still believe.

Be the the one who isn’t so afraid to be hurt because I’ve been hurt before and has always come out even stronger on the other side.

I want to be the one who is vulnerable. Be the one who stays open even after my heart has been crushed time and time again.

Be the one who believes in love, even if my story doesn’t always give me reason to believe.

Be the one who is honest, and fearless, even when the world seems hard at the edges.

I still want to be the one who isn’t afraid to text first, the one who is giddy with excitement just to say good morning.

Be the one who isn’t afraid of rejection, because I know that rejection is just a way life guides me in a new direction.

I’ll be the sensitive one; the caring, nurturing one who cherishes deep conversations and long meaningful phone calls about both nothing and everything.

Be the one who asks questions, the one who digs deep beneath the surface hoping to learn the hidden secrets of the universe.

I’ll still be the one who persists, even when life and love have given me a million and one reasons to give up. Be the one who keeps trying.

I’ve worked so hard to be the one who seeks goodness in every single situation; the one who believes that most clouds really do have silver linings.

And above all, I have put so much effort to be the one who knows my own worth — the one who knows that life’s circumstances do not affect my value and I’m not willing to let all that go.

I still want to be the one who knows that I’m is special and irreplaceable and that there is no one else like me on this miraculous green and blue planet.

So in the midst of darkness, I still want to be the one who knows that my heart is made up of the purest of gold.
