"Up to You"
I saw something that read "love is wanting someone to be happy with or without you wherever they are."
But when I look to the stars, I think of you and others and us and realized that love is what we make of it.
I read a quote that told me "a friendship that lasts seven years will last a lifetime" and thought of many I'd want to know forever anyway.
And I realized,
Life is what we make of it.
I see in you what is my own truth, just like you see in us what is true to you.
And so differences in the ways we think should be accepted as an opportunity to learn more about the world than we previously knew.
After all, it's the new things in life that keep us on our toes.
Who we are is up to you.
Who we become is up to you too.
And that's love to me.
Being able to
Be who I am
With you, in the world, and with anybody.
My writing is my truth
That's why it's called a reflection.
