I take a step forward and find myself in a place that is strangely familiar. And everything I once considered necessary now seems like extra baggage. So I drop it all as my strength grows weary and my heart grows faint. My feet begin to drag and I realize I have nothing left... nothing in my hands, nothing hanging on my shoulder, nothing to pull, I don't even have anyone to bring. So I collapse. And it is in this moment that I wonder why it took me so long to get here.
"But then I will win her back once again. I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her there."
