Doing stuff people don't do anymore. Write, read, inform, educate myself, practice patience, kindness, humility, generosity and soon will come love. Even though I seem totally fine to most, I am kinda not right now and haven't been for some time. I lost my purpose, but am regaining it through my arts again.
The last 5 months have been so trying to my being it is unreal. So I'm sharing it the best way I know how to, through love. Outwardly giving even to strangers what I always fail to receive from the ones who have come and gone in my life. "Hurt people, hurt people."
Remember that. The ones who struggle the most are the ones who engage in the negativity and harm others.
I'm sharing an intimate moment with whoever cares to read. It's short and rough. And heartbreaking.
My writing reads:
I went to our spot by the river (and glistening rocks)
Where we climbed down to have a beer
And talked about life
Where we saw ourselves in the years to come
Where our hearts lie, our mindframe
We then decided we wouldn't part,
That we could see the world together,
Starting with the following summer
I held you all night in the sand and sprinkling rain
I had no clue how you managed to climb with a broken arm and face the pain.
Misguided but fierce
I truly loved you.
We stared at the stars
Captivated by beauty on the eagle river
Where the cosmic bio-luminescence enthralled us
I knew I'd never forget that moment,
Even after everything
I can say it's true,
I kept small pieces of you.
