They said I became very quiet when it happened. It was the world that appeared to be very quiet when it happened. Music stopped. The grand symphony of life stopped. Everything seemed to ground to a halt. And try as I might, I just couldn’t get the engine revving again.
That was, and is, the defining moment of my life. When I recognized that the world could actually go on without me. It was an understanding that brought about a great sense of relief. Without the weight of the world on my shoulders, I am free to explore and develop to my full potential. Without the need to fulfill your expectations, I can walk free from your shadow.
Whether I fly or fall, I’m on my own now.
