Stop analyzing, stop being in your head — let’s just be in the moment.
It is what it is.
And not much will be left of us
After this has occurred.
Just an empty shell,
And another body to be burned
Wonder when it’s going to go away. This big black hole that has turned into your life. Wonder how people survive this. Wonder if you will die of a broken heart. Think about how that might be easier than living.
You don’t have to be hard on yourself just because your reality doesn’t live up to your expectations. You don’t have to stress yourself out just because things don’t fall according to your plans.
The girl who forgives others easily can’t forgive herself for not living up to her own standards.
But the thing is…she’s not a superhero. She’s also human. No powers, just a regular human who bleeds. A regular human being who also gets tired.
In an almost surreal fashion, these ten terminally ill people shared their experiences with life, death, and dying. Some of them are still with us, some of them have since passed away, but all their stories are tremendously moving.
We’re all just trying to make it by in the world we live in, the best way we know how. The thing is, what I wish I could do all the time, and what I wish I could remind everyone else to do, is to keep an open mind, in every possible way.
The wind speaks long syllables in each sigh. The soil calls, coaxing my wandering feet.
