A further realization of the implications of that decision settles in.

You swirl in thought - a mix of sadness, loss, loneliness, and desperation.

A piece that had been previously obscured by a lie you told yourself.

Now a piece that will forever help shape you.

You wake.

You live.

You make mistakes.
