I started small.
I don't mean this purely in physicality,
Though, physically speaking, I was purely small
And purely pure, as well.
This emotional and physical purity was short lived by my long days
And even longer nights.
I would lie awake thinking,
And we all know how thinking is a very dangerous thing to do.
But I thought about life and death and time and the universe and-
Overthinking was a strong suit of mine.
Unofrtunately, the strength of that suit tore my weak shell apart,
Leaving me isolated
In a jail of my own thoughts.
But I got up.
I've blossomed and I've coped
And I've managed to manage my deteriorating mental state.
I am perseverence.
I am determination.
I am constantly brushing myself off
And trying new things
And starting new days.
I started small,
But I've grown so much.
