Favorite Quote:
If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go into business, because we'd be cynical. Well, that's nonsense. You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down

It happens; we put all of our efforts into something with no prevail
We see something heading in one direction and end in the opposite
It happens; we see a certain object and it reminds us of love
It can bring us to our knees, bringing us to tears
It reminds us of hate, joy, happiness, betrayal
Make us clinch our first ready to ignite
We wonder what our future possesses
Am I going to be meaningful, am I going to be successful
We look up into the bright blue sky, seeking an answer
And we find a muddled white light
It happens; we become petrified by ambiguity
What will happen when we die?
Is there anything else out there?
It leads our mind into a dark hole
It happens; it happens to all of us
These questions, these fears
It is what makes all of us different but the same

I was inspired by Neruda's poem called "Walking Around".
