As your garden grows
Nothing happened. And everything did.
Your whole life you can be told something is wrong and so you believe it. Why should you question it?
But then slowly seeds are planted inside of you, one by one, by a touch or a look, and they start to burst out of old hulls shells and they start to sprout. And pretty soon there are so many of them.
They are named Love and Trust and Kindness and Joy and Desire and Wonder and Spirit and Soulmate.
They grow into a garden so dense and thick that it starts to invade your brain where the old things you were once told are dying.
