A Short Letter To Rome
Ahhh Roma, what have you done to me?
I will never be able to exactly put it into words because it is more of a feeling than anything else. I've spent two weeks now wondering your cobblestone streets, getting lost in your sounds and your smells, letting myself indulge completely in being. Being alone, being myself, being happy, being content, being everything I've always wanted to be.
You've shown me that I can be alone but that I don't have to be. You've taught me to let go and experience, to let things just happen the way they will. You've made me feel small, so small.
Standing next to a monument or church that is thousands of years old, basking in your beauty, I felt so young and so insignificant, yet at the same time you helped me to feel a part of something bigger, something greater- a piece in the puzzle of this earth, a true citizen of the world.
Coming here and experiencing you allowed me to realize what I deserve and more importantly, that if I really truly want something and it is right, it will become, it will manifest itself.
Roma, you have changed me, but more so than anything you have allowed me to continue to become the person that I am meant to be, and I am forever grateful for you.
