Growth

Sometimes you’ll just have to do it afraid
Unqualified
Shaky

Sometimes you’ll just have to plow through the heat
The snow
The rain

Sometimes you won’t understand
Sometimes you’ll hate it
Sometimes it will be painful

It isn’t going to be all positivity and light
Because youre going to have to trudge through the darkness of your heart
And sort through the cobwebs of your mind

You’re going to bounce
Jostle
Fall
Look bad
Feel worse

But in the strain, the heavy lifting
That’s where the muscle is built

That’s where you learn to breathe

It won’t always be easy
But it can always be beautiful
If you can redefine your definition of beauty
To include every facet of human existence

If you can internalize to your bones
That all growth is worthy of awe, even when it hurts
