"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."
Henry David Thoreau

"I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, and then all at once."
John Green


I’m the type of person
Who’d make way for others to pass,
Stepping aside shamefully
With my head down,
Shrinking back and finding
Shortcuts around
The unrelenting crowd.

But you would create your own path;
Carve roads beside others’
And still remain respectable, invincible.
Head held high,
Radiating light,
And I know you’ll go so far…

But we go our separate ways;
I continue to avoid confrontation,
And you embrace it.
I cower within myself,
Close the doors,
And you wear your flaws upon your sleeve,
For the crowd of life to see
And adore.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

This is amazing. I wish you could see how much this means to me, and how it me when I first read it. I can't believe that I missed this, and for that I am sorry. This was just inspiring to me, just beautiful and wonderful. You are such a wonderful person, you're going to go far. Very far. Much farther than me in different ways and the same ways. Thank you for sharing this!

"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
