Perhaps the disappearing never mattered because really, we are all just made of atoms and molecules, shifting and changing and coming and going in a constant dance of birth and death, rebirth and death. How everything that dies is eventually replaced, never really disappearing but just merging into bloodstreams that could almost overflow from the weight of what they carry. And although she doesn’t know it yet, there is a gentle stillness that grows and swells like an ocean inside of her, bursting with the life just itching to be realized and acted upon.

There’s a part of me that’s really strong and that’s the same part that gets apathetic; and there’s a part of me that’s really tender and that’s the same part that gets paranoid. The strong part would never get paranoid, and the tender part would never get apathetic.
