This time it was different

This time at my pity party

I cried

Until flowers bloomed

From the flooded soil beneath my feet

I danced so hard

The chandelier fell from the ceiling

My laugh was heard

From distant galaxies

And I grew 600 feet overnight

This time I didn't crumble beneath the weight

I engulfed it

Made it a part of me

Then watched it die

This time

I understood

Exactly what you'd been trying to tell me
