People are like trees. We all have roots, long, curling tendrils of memories and thoughts and feelings, all intertwined. They grow us into who we are today.
We soak up the tears of happiness, anger, stress and sadness, to quench our thirsty, ever-expanding roots. These tears of raw emotion shape our memories into whatever they please, turning joyful times into sad wisps of what used to be.
But we will heal. A passing storm can sweep by, breaking off branches, tearing off our leaves, but we will always grow back. As long as we surround ourselves with beautiful flowers and fill ourselves with sunlight, we will grow. I always want to grow and discover new roots within me.
