Though I walk in silence, my thoughts are loud in my head.
Heard only by me. These thoughts are lanterns, casting a light, a light that shines brighter as I focus my attention on them.
They are gaining a foothold in my reality, pushed by my wish that they do.
Slowly, ever so slowly, my world shifts.
What I once was, I am no longer.
What I will be, I am not yet. My impatience is tempered by what I have gained.
I have gained a measure of truthfulness in my life, shedding the old disguise that I wore for so long.
Yet, it is only the beginning.
I have oceans yet to cross.
