there are far better things ahead than things we leave behind..

… this is how easy it is: i stopped, for the life out of me, thinking about you. even if it was hard. i stopped. little by little. shedding each piece of what you have shared with me, of what i shared with you.

there are far better things ahead than things we leave behind..

Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself that you tasted as many as you could. ”

making sense of the unknown

It’s in the unknown that you thrive to dream. Build something out of nothing.  Adding little pieces that will make up the story or a society. Structures slowly gaining foundation. Though it’ll seem like a pulchritude, nevertheless, you bask in your power to control.

But you are not meant to have everything at the snap of your fingers. Beauty will always challenge you to take risk.  Paltering you for that power to control.  Eager to strip you from everything. An uneven trade for something you wanted to make real.

Regardless of the circumstances, never lose that power. You give your body. Your soul. Your heart. It’s vital to not lose sight of that power. In spite of being in the battlefield, you need to load a lot of ammunition with you. You fight for that power. Hold that tightly.

After all, you are the prime mover. Builder. Architect of that unknown that has been revealed for the world to be jealous on.

decide

Sometimes I don’t want to meet new people, because I  know they’re just going to leave. so in never getting close, I will never have to grieve. so is it better to experience and lose, or not even give yourself a chance to choose? Just let it go and let things be, or hope they’ll come to understand me? You can either risk having a lifetime’s friend, or risk just being a passing trend. What to do, what to do. hang on to old, or embrace the new. The people you don’t meet, can be as crucial as those you do.
