it scares me that you never know what someone is thinking or feeling towards you and everything that they say could be one massive lie
Do you know how much thinking and feeling I’ve done? It’s terrible. And nothing’s come of it.
I like to see people reunited, maybe that’s a silly thing, but what can I say, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t tell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone.
How do you survive?
You just do.
There is no other choice,
no other viable options.
You throw yourself into it,
and make a mess along the way.
Gain a few too many scars,
break some things,
you find yourself with
a couple of friends
and a few precious tools.
You just have to.
Do NOT shame people for choosing not to go to school.
Do NOT insult people for dropping out.
Do NOT teach your children that dropping out means you are a failure.
You never know what’s going on in that person’s life.
Just DON’T DO IT.
