if you’re going to love me
you need to understand
that I love me,
and I love me too much
to watch myself suffer.
when you hurt
I will carry your pain
if it’s too heavy for you alone.
I live for the hardships and nerves,
pushes and plans and small victories
everything is happening
in its perfect, perfect way
The past is long gone
and the future is arriving
not in dreams or hopes
but the divine details
before your eyes
more than skewed and odd pieces
trying to fit together
trying to make sense
Your greatest strength is A peaceful mind, Energized body And joy in what you do. Never compromise those things. Some days Are easier than others. Enjoy each one And don’t forget the other.
I want to live all that I can
…keep your neck long to gaze at the stars
and your fingertips coated from trying to reach them.
