Sleepless nights have been following me around like the forsaken Grim Reaper, stalking my heart and taking away my breath and my peace. The only positive I can grasp from these nights is that I’m awake for the sunrise, and I’ve found myself sitting on the beach, as the world awakens, breathing in the salty air, and marveling at the creation, as the sun slowly shines its reverent light on us all. Yesterday, as the wind and the rain swirled around me, I finally found harmony and reconciliation for my slight troubles, and I relinquished everything to the wind, and it took it away with such fervor. You don’t realize how heavy a burden is until you surrender it. Sleep found my mind quickly last night, and I dreamt of my beautiful family, the house I’ve built around myself, and the concord of knowing that I belong to no one.
