The year hasn't been smooth but... It's been enlightening. The year hasn't been what I expected but... I gained knowledge. The year hasn't been easy but... It's been promising. My understanding of life has been flawed and confusing. My love has changed but it has grown... Strong and amazingly. The foundation has been set it's been made strong through churning and molding. The trials are strenuous but the triumph of the journey gives me the peace I never imagined. Is it truly peace though? It's a feeling that I don't understand. I'm unsure yet I am certain. I stand strong but I feel weak.
