    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...

    Contemplate.. my favourite thing to do.

    I lie at night in total darkness with eyes wide open and visualize what is actually going on, what could've been, what should've been. It is at that moment I really feel alive and truly at peace with myself. It calms me down before I go to sleep and before I wake up to go...

    I read Genesis. Revelation is tempting

    but I never finished it. The middle is just a distraction. Maybe I just find the in-betweens boring. Life is all about the beginning and end. We all die alone. We are born and breath as one. It's not all hopeless. It's just that the beginnings are the ones we forget. Why are...

    Lately these thoughts

    and questions have been swimming in my mind. Thoughts about what is real, what is reality. Questions about who I am, who anyone is... How can we be sure of anything, even in our own minds? The world is so complex yet everything is interconnected; molecularly speaking we are...

    Sometimes being a dreamer

    and a thinker is bad.. You dream about things that'll never happen and you think about things that'll never happen. You're just hopeful. Too hopeful. But it's also a good thing because at least you're humanity is intact. And at least you have hope. People with hope change the...

    What if nothing is real,

    outside our own mind (brains in a vat)? If what we experience is just a projection and simulated reality...but then it's a bit self centered and focused solely on 'I' and others experiences don't exist...and the way you interact or react wouldn't really matter...but I'm not a...

    I Search For You

    I am always thinking about the purpose of life, the 'reality' of existence, trying to logically fit the pieces of the puzzle together, trying to understand, trying to find answers, trying to find you..... I am always looking for signs, searching eyes, listening for words of...

    Apparently, my life isn't going to go the way I

    had planned. But that doesn't mean it can't still be great. From the outside, right now probably looks like the lowest point in my life. From my perspective, though, it's definitely not. A couple of years ago, I had what a lot of people dream of. And I was miserable. I had no...

    It's funny and you may need to be of my

    generation to get this, but we all grew up being sold the fairy tale. You know the one, the tale of living happily ever after. We were led to believe that by a certain age it would be a certain way, we would be happy, set for life, and have no worries. And maybe we weren't...

    Late at night when all the world is sleeping,

    I stay up and think of you. And I wish on a star that somewhere you are thinking of me too. Cause I'm dreaming of you tonight. Till tomorrow I'll be holding you tight. And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be than here in my room dreaming about you and me..

    Love is love and I will except anyone

    that makes me happy. I'm just so confused. I don't know what I am. Am I gay? Am I straight? Am I bi? I just want to be normal and not be made fun of. All I know is that I might be attracted to men and I don't want to be. People act like being gay is wrong and I'm afraid. I'm...

    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.

    and most have eluded me. I don't need to own the world or be super rich. I would like enough money to pay my bills and have a bit extra to take the family on little outings like the zoo or a boat ride or even just fishing. I have struggled all my life to work hard and provide...

    Life is weird. You can go from being strangers,

    I have a lot on my mind.

    Dreaming and thinking just makes me forget about reality. It makes me go to my happy place in the clouds. Far far away from my troubles.
