I am realizing that this skin I’ve worn
may not be fitting any longer
it has begun to strangle me blue
yet I don’t know how to be
I suppose I should learn
how to be big
how to take up space
how to scream out of anything other than fear
how to be unafraid of being seen
and how to stand up when I am questioned
instead of turning on myself
because I was under the impression that it’s easier
to tear myself apart with the rest of the wolves
than to defend my own ideas
this is the year to try
And if 11:11 wishes
do come true,
the stars will lead me
back to you,
because if 11:11 wishes
are truly real,
the moon will help
me while I heal,
maybe I hope 11:11 wishes
are all granted,
so when the sun rises
it gives me you—
who I always wanted.
A humanidade só vai avançar quando cada indivíduo entender que é justamente na diferença do outro, naquilo que foge às suas escolhas pessoais, normas familiares ou padrões coletivos de comportamento, onde está a sua melhor chance de evolução. Reconhecer que aquilo que não é ideal para você pode ser bom para o outro e que a liberdade de escolha e o respeito são imprescindíveis para o convívio em grupo e fortalecimento do todo. Semear a paz e fortalecer cada indivíduo na sua própria verdade é adquirir conhecimento coletivo e força, afinal um grupo com diferentes visões e habilidades é sem dúvida mais forte do que aquele formado por iguais.

I saw you from across the room and my heart fluttered. We shared a few glances. I was staring at you, you were looking at me. I caught you looking at me. You looked away. I smiled at the thought of you thinking of me.
Love isn’t something you tell the person you feel for them.
Love is something you show the person you feel. I never understood how two people can claim to be in love when they do not have the elements of love visible in their lives; friendship, companionship, comfort, laughter, sentiment, concern, respect and the desire to please.
Love needs all these and more, yet you claim love without any of these actions?
And we got the second chance that most people only dream of and it still wasn’t enough to keep us together. It was only enough to show me that sometimes things aren’t meant to be, no matter how desperately or badly you want them to. We were too much for each other, not even a third chance would do us justice.
