i carry them around with me, i don't mind having scars
happiness ain't prison, but there's freedom in a broken heart.
of all the songs on this album, this is the one that sticks with me the most. that last line haunts me every time i listen to it. and the part where she sings about it being a long ten years? i'm like, I KNOW.
it's ok that i allow myself to be sad. it's a catalyst. it pushes me to open my damn eyes and step outside my comfort zone. i see the world differently now. i appreciate things differently. and i give myself time. time to explore and read and wonder and wander. and write.
i've slowly started building a wall around my heart, while simultaneously untethering my wings.
