The truth is that at some point, everyone's going to hurt you. You just have to decide who's worth the pain.

Some say having something to lose is what makes you vulnerable. I believe that having something to lose only makes you stronger.


i feel the warm sand shift under my feet
the water trickling
the whispers of the winds flying
as i stare at the scene in front of me
the sky is flecked with purple and gold
colours associated with greatness and royalty
yet the man before brought no such feelings
a hot tear of sat rolls down my cheecks
and i ask
Why daddy, why?
Why can't I come?
Why must you leave me and mum?
water swooshes around my feet as i wait an answer
he turns, and smiles a smile that doesn't quite reach his eyes
steps through the water and waves goodbye
without a word, his dissapears
behind the sand, the seas, and the blur from my tears
