And suddenly, it woke me like sirens in the night
All of my silver linings, glowing vibrantly in front of me
I stopped looking for the missing pieces of the puzzle
They were never missing after all
I finally knew I believed in God
Each mistake happened right on time
Carefully choreographed though seemingly improvised
I let myself float in the waves instead of fighting through the current
This wake up call, so far from the time I longed for it, Came exactly as planned.
And so I sat.
I cried and I laughed.
I let myself hear the unpleasant sounds as the beautiful melodies they truly were all along…
