Weight of words

I didn’t know
I’d have to travel across the world
to discover myself.

It wasn’t the places,
it was the people;
The connections.
Every. Single. Person.
All of our previous actions
brought us to this exact moment
and what a beautiful feeling it is.

I struggled for a long while
trying to find my place
and I still am, even now.
But each person I’ve met
has brought me here,
to me, today.

One night surrounded by stars
and engulfed by the forest
you told me
“all that matters
is that you’re happy right now.”

You didn’t understand
the weight of your words
but I needed them then
just as much as I need them now.
