“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

Patchwork people are works of art

as their memories make their heart

stitch by stitch of a golden thread

proves that they arent dead

see their faults and all they are

and never forget their sewn up scars

scissors may cut and break and tear

but these people arent afraid nor care

sew their scratches, breaks and cuts

and patchwork people are the friends I trust

I am a patchwork person, stitching pieces of memories, hopes, and dreams. My friends are patchwork people as well. artsy and fun. Do not be afraid to show your patchwork skin, and find those who sew you new parts.
