Can one ever truly prepare for a tornado, hurricane or other natural disaster? No amount of assurance is solace enough for the injured.

My emotions range from “she got some nerve” to “maybe this is what I deserve.”

Now I’m in a place where I just want to recognize me, and I hope not to recognize her as who we were when we parted ways in opposition to who we could be.

Through photosynthesis I’m hoping to reach my proposed heights.
