"but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles. they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint."

people are like teeth in your mouth. the more you love them, the deeper their roots go. the more it hurts when they're taken away. when they choose to pull away from you, they leave a sore spot. and even though you know you're only hurting yourself, your tongue keeps going to that sore spot where that person used to be. a missing tooth is a gap in your smile, a piece of your happiness that's missing. it's a part of yourself that you've lost.
but eventually, i guess we all have to learn to love our smile even when we have teeth missing. it's like a battle scar, a proud reminder of what we've endured to become the people we are now.
