Heartache always has a plan for you. it leads you to the greatest of all loves, if you let it. Don’t let heartache be an experience which pushes you into an abyss. Let it be the experience that opens your eyes to the beauty that your heart deserves. When you know your own worth, you know you can expect a day to day journey of something beautiful. The length, or the number of days, of each experience is of no importance. It’s the very fact that you are blessed with beauty - one that writes the story of your heart. When you feel the gratitude each day, you know that you will never have regrets.
I don’t know about my dreams. I don’t know about my dreaming anymore. All that I know is I’m falling, falling, falling. Might as well fall in.
I don’t know about my love. I don’t know about my loving, anymore. All that I know is, I’m falling, falling, falling. Might as well fall in.

tell your daughter
you yell at her
out of love
you teach her to confuse
anger with kindness
which seems like a good idea
till she grows up to
trust men who hurt her
cause they look so much
"How do you disempower a corrupt system? By empowering yourself. How do you awaken a sleeping population? By awakening yourself. How do you heal a toxic society? By healing yourself."
"Hearts are wild creatures, that’s why our ribs are cages."
"Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will be become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable."
— C.S Lewis

Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
