We read love in books and academic texts,
but we sometimes fail to find it in our lives;
to gain the knowledge, first-hand, of what it feels like.
My heart has lead me down paths that logic could not comprehend.
I am wiser now and I am thankful for that.
I have found the purpose of life there:
in those places, with those people, and in those experiences.
That is what life is: the wisdom gained from a bursting and broken heart.
And, I remind myself that
This is living.
