thanks. again.

You know
Those things in life
The ones that you desperately hope for
Are sure it's the right thing
And it couldn't be
Any other way
?

And then
Hope is deferred
Right turns into absurdity
And fate mocks imagination
?

And in the moment
It's nothing short of devastating
?

You know
It'll be alright
[eventually]
And hope you'll
Actually believe that someday
.

And then
You catch a glimpse
Of how
utterly
ridiculous
It would have been
If you were the master of your ship
And determined your own happenings
.

And the
Kindness of God
Makes sense for just a moment
.

Thus belief
And gratitude
Join hands in reality
.

Oh. So perfectly put. Thank you Luz. You know I needed to hear that. I love the fact that we friends, although miles apart, still struggle on the same level. I feel connected and understood and like all of our lives matter even more when we are holding hands in this life. Thanks for opening your heart.
