quotes

“Maybe I was reaching for authenticity through a funhouse mirror. I didn’t know. I just didn’t want to be who I was. It turns out that’s not a specific enough request.”

— R. Eric Thomas, Here For It(AmazonBookshop)


meet the strong

poetry

everyday we get up

rise to the occasion

sometimes it’s amazing

until it’s not.

we try our best

put on our super-hero chest

fake it till you make it

the chain is stronger than you think

i realize everyday it’s how you think

thoughts become things

it’s time to think great thoughts

try it, it’s you.

quotes

Sometimes I sit and wish I could freeze time right where I am. That way I’ll never lose all of the lovely things that are around me. But time keeps going and things keep getting lost. But I’m still living because something new and beautiful is going to come around eventually and that right there is something to stick around for.

quotes

Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.

-Ernest Hemingway

a glorious day

poetry

this day every year

brings joy to many

not sure if there is any

reasons not to be grateful.

I can only speak for me

but I wanna say

thank you for reading my blog

today and any other day.

vanish

poetry

lost another friend to the virus

confronted with mortality

makes me feel

too much

masculinity makes me want to hold it in

crying under my skin

go away virus

you’re taking so much away

the universe has picked me to stay

I wish I can take your pain away

make it vanish.
