“It’s the first time in a long time, I’m here on my own. And I’m finding reasons to carry on strong“
I stare at this magnificent view while I park the car on the side of the road. I feel a shiver running down my spine. Sometimes I can’t believe I am really here. “There’s no easy way to leave it all behind”
When I open the door, the music, which gave the moment a bit of a dramatic effect, stopped playing and I step out of the car. I only see a few other people taking pictures but being less impressed, they leave after making the snapshot. I can’t leave. I stand there on the edge of reason soaking in this amazing view. I don’t know if it’s because of the song that was playing that gives me this melancholic mood or the incredible view but I see my life flashing by before my eyes. I smile. I smile because I made it here alive.
While I start walking the deserted trail, the song is still playing in my head. “I could tell you my story, bout the hell I’ve been through, oh yeah. I’ve been praying for the answers, and all that really matters. Is coming out of the blue.”
The only thing I hear is the rustling of the trees, the buzzing of the bees and some crickets. The cool wind blows through my hair while the sun warms up my face. “I made it” is what goes through my mind and I smile. “I survived”. Now it’s time to start living.
