That pain in your gut, those tears flowing down the contours of your cheek, reveal nothing more than your singular humanity.
Even time spent alone reminds us there can be no consciousness of the whole until each of its fragments are freely acknowledged.
Just know that surrender and loss were never meant to be the final payoff – for they are charlatans withholding riches just beyond your shattered grasp.
