As I look within, I find my own Spiritual growth. The upward climb into maturity has had alternate routes. Paths crossing, U-turns, endless bridges crossed and a few actually burned. You hear a lot, if only,” I knew then, what I know now.” Actually, in truth, it is a repeated message I tell myself. Honestly, if I were able to go back and change the mistakes I have made, I just might. I get, I am human, sometimes the thought of that kind of power, excites me. Realistically, I know, everything has led me to this place of discovery, the broad highway of spiritual existence. Not everyone is going to look upon the choices I have made and come from a place of forgiveness. The twist is, in this moment, I can. I have. As I look into the eyes of this grey eyed girl, I find a comfort there. For the mirror I hold up in front me, casts my reflection and I know, within this place, and space, I dwell. As fate would have it.
