I don’t know much
It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.

Sometimes life knocks you on your ass… get up, get up, get up!!! Happiness is not the absence of problems, it’s the ability to deal with them.
—― Steve Maraboli (via psych-quotes)
When I first saw you
I knew you were like fireworks
You were loud and full of life
with colours that never wanted to slow down
I’m not quite sure how someone
can light up the sky in a million different ways
but here you are
and sometimes I swear I see your eyes in the stars
I know I’m quiet and it’s hard to show my colours
and I’m sorry
if sometimes I get lost inside my thoughts
but you should know most of these thoughts are of you
like how you can’t sleep before 5am
and how an ocean doesn’t matter to you
or how I look at you
and you’re looking at me too
I know life isn’t always about bright colours and fireworks
and sometimes colours aren’t always clear
but slow down with me
hold my hand and let me kiss you
until you fall asleep
I promise together
we will have gentle fun
When adults say, ‘Teenagers think they are invincible’ with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don’t know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail.

today I saw a preteen girl pick up Mean Girls at Target and ask her friend what it was. She didn’t even know. She said it sounded dumb. The people are forgetting. The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it.
