Time takes it all - whether you want it to or not. Time takes it all. Time bears it away. And in the end, there is only darkness. Sometimes we find others in that darkness, and sometimes we lose them there again - Stephen King

We keep running,
Chasing our tails
And the stars of humanity
Gripping the rails,
Till we fall down the stairs
And we can’t break the fall,
We just have to climb up before
We bring our bones to the maul.

The shadows of darkness
That veil our cold eyes
And the spiders of hatred
Whose venom pierces with lies,
Battle so strong against
The giants of love
With peace and fresh hope,
A dole of new doves.

However the dull
Presses down on the bright,
Like a yin needs a yang
And a bird needs its flight,
Every morbid action is matched
With a reaction force,
Like a dark with a light
And the hay with the horse

Like the rhythm of drums
Our hearts beat a line
Of destiny, fate,
And a one-of-a-kind,
Printed in ink
And stamped with a seal
Forever we run, rise,
And ever try to heal.

"Someday soon we're gonna catch that dream we've been chasing"
"Seven days without a horse makes one weak."
"The worst part of riding is when you dismount."

Insult my clothes, I say, “Okay, thanks for the compliment.”
Insult the way I look, I say, “Thanks for notifying me.”
Mock me and say riding isn’t a sport, and I’ll say,”You say that ’cause you can’t ride.” But before you make fun of my horse, make sure you have “911″ on your speed dial.

That was SO wonderful! :D

"All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost."

"I know that life is busy and hard, and that there’s a crushing pressure to just settle down and get a real job and khaki pants and a haircut. But don’t. Please don’t. Please keep believing that life can be better, brighter, broader, because of the art that you make. Please keep demonstrating the courage that it takes to swim upstream in a world that prefers putting away for retirement to putting pen to paper, that chooses practicality over poetry, that values you more for going to the gym than going to the deepest places in your soul. Please keep making art for people like me, people who need the magic and imagination and honesty of great art to make the day-to-day world a little more bearable. And if, for whatever reason, you’ve stopped– stopped believing in your voice, stopped fighting to find the time–start today. - Shauna Niequist, Cold Tangerines

"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."

"You were born crying, so die smiling."

This is so beautiful. Well done.
