Why did it take so long?
To drop the burden. To let go.
To realize. To accept.
And, to be free.
Why was so much time wasted?
In fighting the wrong battles.
In figuring out allies and amoral opportunists.
And, in identifying the most resourceful weapons in the armoury.
Why did it get so complex?
To see through the fog.
To recognize intentions.
And, to pick the right from the wrong.
Why was the understanding lacking?
That growing needs effort.
That leadership needs courage and sacrifice.
And, that reality reveals itself at some point.
The setback is distressing, but the resolve is renewed.
The task is tough, but there is help.
The outcome is scary, but there is hope.
The day has ended, but there is a tomorrow.
