“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”

"I'm just a little bit caught in the middle,
Life is a maze, and love is a ridde."
-Lenka


The twitch of a finger
Can pull back my trigger
And shape a pair of lifeless eyes.
My sorrow's pang
Goes off with a bang,
And I watch as another dies.
The hands that hold me
Are the ones that control me
And use me against my will.
But they don't give a damn,
I am what I am.
I only live
To kill.

We’re all a little weird. And life’s a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in to mutual weirdness and call it love.

Its really good, Pad. Good rhyme, and it leaves me to think.

“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”


― Dalai Lama XIV
