winds

the wind is sharp tonight. it cuts through my mind as i huddle with my thoughts across campus. the winter darkness is thick and invasive and creeps into the cracks slashed by the wind. escape seems impossible.

moments ago were warmth. low-lighted coffee sofas and interested underclassmen exploring potential of growing together, of living life with intentionality.

how distinct the differences…of sitting close to like-minded brothers versus stealing quickly through the darkness alone. i thought independence was a treasure. and trusting others was a crutch. i had “bought the myth of independence, not realizing it was but a euphanism for loneliness.”

even nature reminds us of all truth. a sharp wind sends me fleeing to community. an embrace will be my shield.
