Paper vs. Rock
Author: Leah Boyer
It took me years to make my way out of that great, thick fog. The remnants of exhaustion are still
clinging to my bones
Take the tendrils of fear and doubt away from my heart
I know the struggle to keep connection with you, is the struggle to connect to myself
Help light the path so that I can keep walking in the right direction
If you are sending paper airplanes of inspiration in my direction, and I am too distracted to notice,
please don’t throw rocks.
Instead fill the skies of my awareness with so many paper airplanes that I cannot help but see you
Help me rebuild myself after being stripped down
Make it that the victories outweigh the failures
Give me the opportunity to connect to others in a way that is meaningful, and has the depth I’ve always
Give me the courage to show my true self. To gracefully step up, and into life without hesitation
Please don’t mistake my recent string of big requests for ungratefulness. It is because I have seen
what you, and my connection to you, can do; that I am so bold in my asking.
