do you feel your heart beat
in the middle of a cold night,
with only the sound of your
breathing as you attempt to
exhale all your worries of an
unknown future, so vast that
it makes you wonder if your life
is days, months, years, an adventure
worth exploring or just
an abyss, an existence, as you
float around darkness?
do you hear the gust of winds
through the window cracks and
above the rooftops, a whistling
breeze with no intent to move
in any sort of direction, but the
direction where it’s meant to go.
when the sun’s rays warm your skin
there is nothing quite as pleasing as
the way the air blows against your
pores with a coolness.
is there a point to the breeze, then
the comforting way it rustles the leaves,
a reminder of nature’s beauty?
when you wonder where your
purpose lies, and you live in a
state of doubt on the reason for
existing, be the breeze.
take the hand of someone with sweat
covering there brow from all the pain
they have to endure and give them
a nice breeze, carry their burden
to take the load off.
bring out the magnificence of nature”
and the beauty of life
with every stride towards your purpose.
follow the wind, go with the flow,
find a north star along the way to
know where to go
and surely your reason here will find you.
“The smallest you are, the biggest you have.. Mucubal - Angola.
All the Mucubal men have this big knife called omotungo, at any time of the day. They use it to cut wood, kill scorpions and snakes. It is also a good way to look terrific to the french tourists!”.

Biking on this trail around my house and was crossing the bridge and saw this. Just had to get a shot!
I still love you
no I don’t.
I’m so confused. why did this happen.
I want you to be happy. if this is what it takes then I’m okay with it. be happy. for me. please.
don’t you ever give up.
I kind of hate you for leaving me.
but I still love you.
I won’t look at you in person but I talk to you in my head
you’re a better listener this way.
maybe if I wasn’t so fucked up this wouldn’t have happened
no. it’s not my fault.
but it kind of is.
I hate this
I don’t know who I am without you.
why can’t things be like they were before
please come back to me. I need you. you need me.
we are so goddamn bad for each other it’s beautiful. I’m addicted to our heartbreak.
I went through our old messages. I cried because you promised to always be there. you lied.
you smiled at me in the hall today. i thought my chest was being ripped open
I’m glad you’re smiling though. ”
