For those of you who had seen my last poem, yes I must admit, it was sad. “Very beautiful, but sad”, as I was told by my close friend. What can I say? It has stemmed from pure, raw feelings. Feelings of frustration and uncertainty that I had been experiencing.
Yesterday my ‘very beautiful, but sad’ friend suggested I should write a new post to take away the sadness of that poem, having heard what I had to say.
That’s because I had an epiphany the day after writing the poem and have come to a decision. Not an impulsive one, something that has been nagging at me for awhile now. Acknowledging all the signs and keenly observing what I’ve experienced the past couple of years have culminated in that decision. At the moment only a few close friends know about it and it will involve me forging a new path ahead. I’m not trying to be cryptic, but I want to be fair to people whom I’ve not personally told; it would not be nice at all if they found out through the internet.
I will still be surrounded by giants; there is no way I’m abandoning my trees. I will absolutely embrace them, even more so than I did before. Call me a fanatic with an obsession, but trees are in my life now and they will stay there permanently. The journey won’t be easy, but it will be even more meaningful than before.
I will grow old with them and understand them like no other.
To a new path ahead! The joy that it will bring and the amazing people who will follow me on this journey.
Let’s do this.
