There are some things that you hold close to your heart, that you cling to tightly, treasures that you fear you might lose if you let them out of your sight for even a moment.
You are so close to them, you can't see the damage you might do with the strength of your grasp, with the tightness of your grip, your care stifling.
And then you step away, just for a second, and you see it from the other side, clear, and you set it free...
And as you watch it take flight, you turn your head away, your arms folded protectively against your chest, bracing against the loss. Turn back and you will know that it is headed not away from you but towards, a choice made in freedom.
