In a New Light: Under the Surface 2018 - Kimi, 15 - "I'm Just Enough"
When I first saw the caves at Devil’s Island from the boat I saw history. I saw the years flash before my eyes. It was stunning; disarming, like the breath taken from my lungs but then I got into the water and I captured history through the tips of my fingers. No amount of words can describe the spiritual calling. The history of the caves is like nothing I’ve ever felt before. The years of too much pressure have made some around me too hard but others around me can’t handle the weight of the world. They collapse, they crumble, they acquiesce. They accept the new life they are to begin. But I, like sandstone, hold the weight of the world. I’m strong but not heartless. Vulnerable but not helpless. I’m beautiful but not rain.
