“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

Dear New me,

Your past is catching up.

It tears you down

And throws you around

Corrupts you from the inside out.

Im here to remind you

That you were empty when it happened.

Hollowed and cold

Like snow in the forest

No animal was chattering.

Your not corrupted,

Callused or cold

You're the Radio host,

The penguin, the bold.

This is from

The old you again

Signing off,

TheRareBreed (you from the past, future, and end)
