I want to stay.
I want to leave.
I am three oceans
away from my soul."
"Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life."
When panic grips your body and your heart’s a hummingbird
Raven thoughts blacken your mind until you’re breathing in reverse
And all your friends and sedatives mean well, but make it worse
Every reassurance just magnifies the doubt
Better find yourself a place level out
"Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does."
So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.
