Not A Fairytale

Was it ever possible for us? Was there ever a time, ever a moment?

—Cersei Lannister, Game of Thrones (via requiemforthepast)

Peace can exist only in the present moment. It is ridiculous to say “Wait until I finish this, then I will be free to live in peace.” What is “this”? A diploma, a job, a house, the payment of a debt? If you think that way, peace will never come. There is always another “this” that will follow the present one. If you are not living in peace at this moment, you will never be able to. If you truly want to be at peace, you must be at peace right now. Otherwise, there is only “the hope of peace some day.

I often thought that if I had had to live in the trunk of a dead tree, with nothing to do but look up at the sky flowing overhead, little by little I would have gotten used to it.

This world could be much better if we weren’t so damn ignorant.

No, it’s not ok to mostly act like a negative douchenozzle. Our neurological reaction is naturally offended, stop trying to sugarcoat like it doesn’t mean anything. Reacting positive to one another really does make a difference, but not much of that truly spreads in the atmosphere nowadays for us to realize that.

There’s something missing in my life

I’m sure I know what it is, but I don’t think Ill ever be privileged to obtain that feeling comfortably ever again.

Fudge 😔

I wonder how biology can explain the physical pain you feel in your chest when all you want to do is be with someone.

For a true poet, every moment of existence, every act,
ought to be poetic since, in essence, it is so.
