Let’s Run Away; Let’s Create Our Own World Together

Paolo Raeli

I will meet you
within the holes of the sky,
the untouched tunnels
where dreamers stamp out the supernovas.

I will meet you
within the intensity of the sea,
between the waves and the horizon,
that small sliver of Earth
where feeling is preserved
like a mounted butterfly
in a glass case.

Where is the place
that surges beyond love?

I will meet you there. TC mark

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
