I just wrote this so recorded it quick,
i’ve been doing this every night for the last week and a half or so,
they aren’t anything special, it’s just a way for me to get some bits and bobs out of my head
maybe some can relate, that’s the aim.
Tonight i’ll only think of you
For punishment of what i did not do
To know you’re happier,
These are silver linings,
To know you’re being held,
These are silver linings
So be strong, be safe and be loved.
These are silver linings
"The worst thing in the world can happen, but the next day the sun will come up. And you will eat your toast. And you will drink your tea."
"I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that 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. Delicious Ambiguity."
"At fifteen you had the radiance of early morning, at twenty you will begin to have the melancholy brilliance of the moon."
"You have more to do
than be weighed down
by pretty or beautiful
you are a fiery heart
and a wicked brain
do not let your soul
be defined by its shell."
"Sometimes when you meet someone, there’s a click. I don’t believe in love at first sight but I believe in that click."
"A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face she inquired, “How heavy is this glass of water?” The answers called out ranged from 8oz to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If i hold it for a minute, its not a problem. If i hold it for an hour, i’ll have an ache in my arm. If i hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer i hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a big longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything.” Always remember to put the glass down."
"If you live for nothing than you’ll die with nothing at all."
