When I am nothing will I mean something?
In my absence would anything be different?
I don’t know and that scares me.

Knowing more and feeling less is a poor man’s defense.
Study the nights and unravel the mysteries.
Dream when life gets dark.

Smile, keep your head up.
Move with purpose.
Speak with heart.

Everything is not as it was.
Leave everything whole.
Always be true.

The rest is temporary.

  1. Beautiful and with great meaning it’s a very truthful piece of writing. Great work.



    This one struck hard for me. I think we as human beings strive to put meaning in our and other people’s lives so we don’t feel lost or forgotten.
    Yourself and your writing always makes a meaningful impression that stays with me.
