Every time you think you are broken,
know this: you are never really breaking.
No one can break an ocean,
darling, all you are doing,
is breaking the glass that is holding you back,
diving deeper into your own depths,
discovering yourself in pockets of the most somber waves,
rebuilding your heart with coral,
with seaweed, with moon colored sand dust.
So stop trying to hold yourself back inside that glass,
it was never meant to hold you.
Instead, break it, shatter it into a thousand pieces…
and become who you were always meant to be,
an ocean, proud and whole.
