    “If we take eternity to mean not infinite

    temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.” ― Ludwig Wittgenstein

    Finally!

    A time comes in your life when you finally get it. When in the midst of all your fears and insanity you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out - ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying or struggling to hold on. And, like a child quieting down...

    The heart says, "Fly high" The mind responds,

    'The dream is too high"... Heart constricts; Mind cramps. Spirit jolts to consciousness Soul cries in gnawing pain.

    Have you ever wondered

    that maybe, dreams are a recollection of memories from past lives and from paradise lost. And that when you die, that maybe you completed your mission/purpose on earth, so your soul travels to the gates to judge how well your mission was completed. If poorly, the souls travels...

    The Porch Swing

    I spent the better part of this afternoon contemplating the purpose of dreams. Why, I asked myself is the brain capable of creating this conscious manifestation of something that we desire when it is wholly impossible in reality? Cruel occipital lobes, flashing images that then...

    Back In The Day

    I once had the arrogance to believe that I would change the world. But, as what happens over time, the world changed me. The ideals are still there, but they keep get buried deeper every year. I become a little more cynical. I've seen so much promise die. People fight, give...

    I used to believe in fairytales

    and happy endings. Now I just believe in the story, the journey.Is it best to love even though you know it cannot be? Is it better to take the journey, to live in the moment despite knowing the end won't be happy, or is that creating a self-fulfilling prophesy of an unhappy...

    Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard.

    Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.

    You'll end up really disappointed

    if you think people will do for you as you do for them. Not everyone has the same heart as you.

    Five Days Later.

    You opened this door. Why are you here? Must be your choice. There is no such thing as chance. Survey the room. Since you are here. It is expansive. Large glass windows. Billowy white sheers. The wind blows in lifting the sheers, fluffing them. The room is overcast. The skies...

    THE One Flaw In Women

    This one is for the ladies… By the time the Lord made woman, he was into his sixth day of working overtime. An angel appeared and said, "Why are you spending so much time on this one?"And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on her? She has to...

    My older brother is always bashing on me about

    how the future won't work out. My dreams are just a lie to him. I have big ones, I want to study animation, and become a good pianist. You have to work for your dreams, no matter how hard. It's the only way to make your dreams turn into reality. His words won't bring me down. I...

    The night takes my open mind

    and sprinkles it across its darkened, cloudy palette. My thoughts nothing but the stars glittering with naughty intent. Is it the moon that winks, or the baby suns? Bright, so bright. But my eyes are nothing but dull, burning orbs. The night stole my mind, and my demons keep it...

    it's amazing how one anonymous person on an app

    like this, can keep me sane. so many kind hearted people on this Earth, but sad to know that someone I don't know, understands me better than those I'm around daily.

    Nationalism serves? People say its a good thing. People like me say it isn't. Sure, I get it, people can feel free to love their country I don't care but its patriots that I can not stand at times. They always start up things, poke fun at other peoples countries, lives and...

    Shadows of Thought

      I was reading through my journals recently. Fifteen-years-old seems so long ago. I guess some things are better left in the past, unthought of and unseen.  Maybe I shouldn't have read those notebooks. Still, I can’t help but feel bad for the girl who...

    My thoughts flow like water,

    I literally spend my whole high school career

    this far musically. One of the major disadvantages of being stuck in a small town is that I couldn't put a band together if I had to. Two years ago, this was frustrating. I've always believed in the saying "where there is a will, there is a way" because I believe that willpower...
