black lives matter

Message from Writer

"You can’t control what happens to you in this life. Each individual is living out their own story, and you’re living out yours. But you can’t control it and manipulate it, filtering out aspects of your life - of yourself - that aren’t cemented in your idea of the plan. The plan, the map for what your life should be. Because the only thing you can do - the one thing you can do - is learn. Learn from your mistakes and watch the horizon. There’s always something amazing up ahead. But you can’t live in your future, and you can’t drown in your past. All you can do is live wholeheartedly - without fear or regret for what’s to come and what has been - and love every damn minute of it… because you only get this once."

sometimes the best things in life are free

but some of them come at a price

and sometimes the moments we seek will pass us by

without our realization

and we notice too late

the world's crumbling around us

withering

drifting 

uselessly

aimlessly

in that forgotten summer breeze

of yesterday

ah, c'est la vie

put another record on the player, darling

hey now

hey now

don't dream it's over

    I like this .... it's sad, nostalgic, but also reminds us to be optimistic.
