I will not play tug o' war.....

I will not play tug o' war. 
I'd rather play hug o' war. 
Where everyone hugs instead of tugs, 
Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug, 
Where everyone kisses, 
and everyone grins, 
and everyone cuddles,
 and everyone wins."

My life belongs to me.....

My life belongs to me.
Therefore,  I will love who I want, leave who I want, not talk to whoever I don't want to, speak my mind, be silent when I don't think it's worth saying, cry when I am sad, laugh loudly, walk away when I think the time is right, decide who and what is a waste of time, know what I am worth, remember where I came from, and if I don't know where I am has nothing to do with anyone but me.

The greatest thing you'll ever learn 

is just to love  

and be loved in return.

Which shouldn't exist....

Which shouldn’t exist in this world,
the one who forgets or the one who is forgotten?

Which is better, to love one who has died 
or not to see each other when you are alive? 

Which is better, the distant lover you long for 
or the one you see daily without desire? 

Which is the least unreliable among fickle things - 
the swift rapids, a flowing river, or this human world?”

She didn't need much.....

She didn't need much, wanted very little.

A kind word, sincerity, fresh air, clean water,

a garden, kisses, books to read, 

sheltering arms, 

a cozy bed,

and to love and be loved in return.

And in the end.....

And in the end, 
we were all just humans.. 
drunk on the idea that love, 
only love, 
could heal our brokenness.

How do you do that.....

How do you do that?
Act like you don't care, 
like you don't feel anything?
Because I can't do that.
I feel.
I feel everything.

Some poems don't rhyme.....

Some poems don’t rhyme,
and some stories don’t have
a clear beginning, middle, and end.
Life is about not knowing,
having to change,
taking the moment and making the best of it,
without knowing what’s going to happen next.”

The mind.....

The mind is never satisfied with the objects immediately before it,

 but is always breaking away from the present moment, 

and losing itself in schemes of future felicity... 

The natural flights of the human mind are not from pleasure to pleasure, 

but from hope to hope.

~Samuel Johnson
