My reality

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.
