“Only Human” — Day 1.
for all that i am worth, for all that i am not, for all that i will be some day, for all that i’ve taken from, for all that have taken from me, for the years that we can’t get back, don’t let your life be a series of unfortunate regrets, a lover once told me that i should never regret a thing because once upon a time- this was exactly what you wanted in the moment and it dances back and forth in the back of my mind like a bittersweet aftertaste, you linger inside of my clothes, you strain my eyes, you tense my heartstrings, you wear my smile out, you tear down all of my walls just to rebuild them back up even stronger, how many times have we been down this road? i don’t mean to be so sad all of the time, as a matter of fact, I think i may be getting better. you hold on to the softest parts of you and claim that the sun doesn’t burn clouds, we’re all dried out and looking for another way to turn back the hands of time, but the truth is nothing is guaranteed and this life is just as sweet as we make it. so if the past is dead, let it die. so if the future isn’t here, let it stay there, right where it belongs. so if the present is suffocated by your constant need to dwell in shit that no longer matters to anyone and if you’re smothering the very idea of living for now because tomorrow isn’t a sure thing, just listen to the silence of early morning birds sing. as their songs reach into the places of your consciousness that even you can’t touch, know that somewhere, once upon a time, you knew the universe as something more than what we see-- you are and will always be a part of those same stars that’s glowing and glowing and glowing. and maybe that’s why your heart keeps beating and beating and beating. we’re all trying to find a way to return home, some just make it there a little earlier than us.
