“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

you ever felt the sigh of relief,

when all of the world seizes to speak.

when its all so quiet even the moon,

will sit still on a bright afternoon.

The sun has dimmed and the world will spin,

but this moment is yours no matter the tune.

the tune of the music, 

so pure and sweet.

a tune for your ears only,

in this summer of heat.

so close your eyes and bask in its hum,

as you've finally made it,

a friend of some.

For all those who have just completed something. Take a breath and listen... It's quiet. You've made it. Enjoy it, relish it. Make the music shine.
