“Two things prevent us from happiness; living in the past and observing others.”
— Unknown (via dingyfeathers)
I’ve probably posted this before, but it’s striking. This is why tumblr is hard sometimes… because I observe so many people living life to fullness, adventuring and free. I feel winter coming and I’m not ready for it. I miss adventure, I miss fullness, I miss God. But I fail to put one foot in front of the other some days.
from a forced slumber
We are breathing into our lungs
so it will be a part of us again
It will make us angry at first
because we will see how much you stole from us
and for how long you watched us suffer
we will see how you see us
and how when we copied your ways
it killed our own.
We will cry and cry
because we can never be the same
But we will go home to cry
and we will see ourselves in this huge mess
and we will gently whisper the circle back
and it will be old and it will be new."
