" You can just feel the details. The bits and pieces you never bothered to put into words. And you can feel these extreme moments... even if you don't want to. You put these together, and you get the feel of a person. Enough to know how much you miss them... and how much you hate the person who took them away." -Leonard Shelby


Because you’ve loved, you’re been broken.
Because you’ve spoke, you’re silent.
Because you’ve been social, you’re withdrawn.
Because you’ve been fearless, you’re scared.
Because you’ve been untroubled, you’re stressed.
Because you’ve been flawless, you’re scarred.
Because you’ve won, you’re losing.
Because you’ve been surrounded, you’re alone.
Because you’ve been peaceful, you’re violent.
Because you’ve been quite, you’re speaking up.
Because you’ve took the hits, you’re fighting back.
Because you’ve just stood there, you’re embracing.
Because you’ve lost them, you’re not going to let them go.

The ones who matter most are most aware that everyone else matters, too.

I really like this(: It pretty much explains anyone who has gone through some kind of issue or tragedy.
