i thank God for pictures.

God bless you on the days you feel weak, to keep going.
Individuals may take numerous opportunities to knock you down.
Let that be the reason to keep your head up.

simple thought.

such a simple thing to say, but truly one of the most important aspects in life.
you are here!
be thankful.
i promise you there is good people and things in the world.
People talk about how dark, evil, and wicked this world is.
Look for the light and be greatful that you are living.
It is out there.
Recognize it.find it. live by it.

stumbling choices

i could not decide what my mind wanted to post. 

yet how frustrating it can be. i get a lot out of myself and stumble on things that have meaning in one way or another when  i procrastinate and do everything unplanned. just got me thinking about choices. 

i was told this over the summer from one of my idols. i want to live it one day. and actually embrace its power.

Art Alive

Life is an art. In these flashing moments...
I see Art in an old soul, fleeting smiles, and sunlight striking a child across blushing cheeks.
I open and shut my weary eyes, pretending I'm taking pictures.
I'll post them up in the walls of my brain cavity. I want to remember these moments forever.
The times where the light is golden, The car is going so fast I can't focus on a single thing, and those times I just want to spin and spin with my eyes shut, head up towards the sky.
I won't remember what shoes I was wearing, or how I did my hair that day.
I'll just get a feeling that I can't pin down, and I'll know I'm alive.

Sweet Darkness

When your eyes are tired
the world is tired also.

When your vision has gone
no part of the world can find you.

Time to go into the dark
where the night has eyes
to recognize its own.

There you can be sure 
you are not beyond love.

The dark will be your womb

The night will give you a horizon
further than you can see.

You must learn one thing:
the world was made to be free in.

Give up all the other worlds 
except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn

anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive

is too small for you.
