I began with Silence.
Then I heard noises of people
Calling out to me
My heart jumped out of excitements
My feet leaped high from expectations
I remember the first time I fell in love; how this fruition of the heart came to life
I also remember how my first fruit failed to ripe
As those noises turned to blurry faces
My steady ground turned to a thousand mountain cliffs
So, I looked for the biggest stone I could find
I placed it in front of me so I wouldn't fall
Years turn to stones
Shielding me from the heights, the rain, the storms and the burning sunlight
Now, I can't really hear their noises
The stones are natural barriers, sort of like being in a cave, so out of tune with the world outside
I wonder, would I be able to tear down the stones and step out? I've been staring down the cliffs for far too long
I can see what they have to offer
"Not today", I thought to myself.
Today, I placed another stone.
