"on heartbreak and healing...

there isn't just
"something to be fixed" here;
there's a journey to take...
you aren't going to go through this
just to go back to who you were before.
and this heartbreak may feel
like a burning season,
but there's a promise in this violence...
the healing will be a blooming season,
and alchemy is the way through.
you're meant to come out of this something
different and beautiful on the other side."
