Summer rain with ‘milk and honey’

We’re just too young to rush through life, aren’t we?

Maybe, we just need to pause for a while and think of what we may regret 40 years later. Maybe, we don’t have to follow the crow for as long as we listen to our inner voice.

And yet, that’s how we’ve learnt to be special.

“most importantly love
like it’s the only thing you know how
at the end of the day all this
means nothing
this page
where you’re sitting
your degree
your job
the money
nothing even matters
except love and human connection
who you loved
and how deeply you loved them
how you touched the people around you
and how much you gave them” 

“i don’t know what living a balanced life feels like
when i am sad
i don’t cry i pour
when i am happy
i don’t smile i glow
when i am angry
i don’t yell i burn
the good thing about 
feeling in extremes 
is when i love 
i give them wings 
but perhaps 
that isn’t 
such a good thing 
cause they always 
tend to leave and 
you should see me 
when my heart is broken 
i don’t grieve” 

“your art
is not about how many people
like your work
your art 
is about
if your heart likes your work
if your soul likes your work
it’s about how honest
you are with yourself
and you 
must never 
trade honesty 
for relatability”
