“Sometimes people are beautiful. Not in their looks. Not in what they say. Just in what they are."
-Marcus Zusak

There are moments,
when life is beautiful,
and people are beautiful.

When serenity is present,
and the grass moves with the wind.
Everything is calm.

These moments,
times when I breathe in the pure air
and believe that life has a purpose.

When I am content to lay in the dewy grass
and watch the stars fall,
content to live in the moments.

When it just seems right, fitting, perfect...
There isn’t a single word to describe it.

And then a day comes,
when everything abruptly changes.
We are forced to change in response.

There are moments.
When I am not sure who I am
or what I am here for.

When beauty has no purpose,
and grass is no longer as green
as it used to be.

These moments.
Times when I wish I could believe,
in something other than sorrow.

When I am desperately trying to believe
that glass doesn't break,
and hearts are not as fragile.

When we realize that we are so
much stronger than we thought we were.
