"Life sucks. A lot. But you just have to keep on going. No matter what happens. You can never ever give up. You just have to roll with the punches, go with the flow, and always try your best to keep on going <3"

The chain that connects me to you
Is strong
And unable to break.
No matter how hard I try
I will always be tethered to you.
No matter how I try to disguise you
Or deny that you’re there
I will always be tethered to you.
I must pull you with me
For you will not walk.
And you pain me so.
But I will always be tethered to you.
You grow stronger than me at times
But I still must pull your weight.
And I know that I can’t ever stop
Because I’ll always be tethered to you.
And though you may try
To make me give up.
I will never.
I know that I must be strong
Even when I’m not.
So together we will walk
On my path of life.
Because I’ll always be tethered to you.

To love, to be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and vulgar disparity of the life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”

I love it!
