Stumbling Up The Mountain by Melodie Yvonne
I find it amazing how some people can affect us in such fundamental ways in the blink of an eye, while others can be in our lives our entire existence like that of a sturdy mountainside that blocks your view of the sun, but can never quite keep you from growing.
I met a boy. One of the most beautiful boys I’ve ever met… And I didn’t know it. Later I found out why I couldn’t see how wonderful he was. It was because I realized looking at him was like looking at a reflection of myself, and at that time I just didn’t like myself that much. By the time I realized I had fallen it was too late, and I left him at the top of the hill while I ran away, stumbling back to that mountain for cover.
It’s hard to tell how long I’ll be able to stay here in its shadow. I’m like the Trans Am that you buy for fun, but you really just can’t get up those mountain roads without that Toyota 4Runner, and that’s something I’m never going to be.
So it’s funny how some people can affect you so much. Some people stay in our lives for decades, and then some are so much more… Some can change the entire structure of your being in a two-hour car ride, and nothing will ever be the same.
