Season

Nothing I say will ease your pain,
No amount of well wishes and positive thoughts will change the past,
Life has its own weird way of comforting us through suffering,
But, know that it is merely a season.
The darkness you feel at the moment will pass,
You will begin to feel like yourself again,
And you will look back at it and be proud that you came through it,
There is always a lesson to learn from difficulties,
But, we never see it while we’re in the middle of the storm,
Seasons come and they go,
With them comes new revelations,
And we shift and shed into new, wiser versions of ourselves,
But, in order to get there- we need the bruises, cuts, wounds,
They make up the tapestry of our stories,
Rest assured,
It is merely a season…
