you must dowhat you need

you must do

what you need to do

to be authentic.

 

the discovery of your true self includes

connecting the dots

 

it means digging deep into the archives of childhood, 

searching for signs 

hungry for answers

aching for proof

 

but

underneath those archives,

searching,

underneath thick, salty tears

underneath your binder,

hungry,

underneath discomfort immersed in relentless sorrow,

you are aching.

 

you learn that growth is a result of accepting your authentic self.

 

aren't you tired of the same, daily unhappiness?
