You are free.
You are free before the noon day sun
You are free before the moon,
and you are free before the stars.
And you are free where there is no sun
and when there is no moon,
and when there isn’t a single star in the sky.
But you are a slave,
You are a slave to the one you love,
Because you love him
And you are a slave to the one you love because he loves you back.
Unknown Arabic poet
do you guys realize we can change our lives any time we want like you can just go ahead and delete your blog, stop eating meat, shave your head, start running, tell that person you hate why you hate them so much, confess your love to someone and kiss them unexpectedly like why don’t we do that
"We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we’re because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love—these are what we stay alive for."
RIP O Captain, My Captain.
Fair people keep their commitments, give fair gifts and forgive fairly. Try love as fairness. Life isn’t fair, but love can be.
