I cannot change your life, I cannot change your mind.
I can only listen.
And together, we can dig.
As you open up your soul and reach into midnight caves;
Where we chip away at hidden hardships,
To find thoughts and memories and emotions,
Held so very tight.
Finally letting go.
Letting go of the weight, that was not your choice to carry.
Ripping apart the invisible jail that binds you.
Loss. Sadness. Grief. Guilt.
Learning how to fly; slowly breaking free.
