I am learning
The difference between
Intimacy and passionate embrace
Egg in your mouth and egg on your face
A kiss on the lips and a kiss on the cheek
Showing mercy and being weak
Going the distance and running the race
Feeling things out and feeling out of place

Peaceful rest and resting in peace
Letting go and being released
Staring at the sun and seeing the light
Fighting for justice and starting a fight
Knowing you and you knowing me
Freeing your mind and being free

I have come to accept
That not everyone wants to be my friend
That not every beautiful person wants to hold my hand
That not every story needs a “proper” end
