Ohio Never Asked Me // (1 Min Read)

 

Ohio never asked me to be anything sparkling.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

She never said I wasn’t as good as my neighbor, nor made me feel like I was trapped.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

She showed me her deepest, darkest soils.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

She pounded me with rains that flood my dreams to this day.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ohio gave me hills to wonder about until I scaled them, and rivers to believe were impermeable until I learned to cannon-ball through them.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

She cradled me in blazing sunsets and pushed me into the world with fires of faith.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ohio never asked me to be anything but as real as the trees that whispered to me from her magnificent surface.
