Today I completed 365 days around the sun without my mother's arms, scent, voice. Without seeing her beautiful smile, without touching her, kissing her, telling her how much I adore her.

Without seeing her beautiful smile, without touching her, kissing her, telling her how much I adore her. I thought I couldn't exist a day without her but I completed a year. My year was blessed in many other ways with miracles happening to push me forward and towards good things. Miracles I know my mom was pulling strings from heaven for. But none that I wouldn't trade in a heart beat to hug her once again. Because my bond with my mom was incomparable. We were the best of friends. She had this way about her that could soothe anyone. Infinite words of love and tender affection. Her heart was an open book. There's a hundred things people tell you when you are grieving to help pull you out of your misery. But no words can heal my broken heart.
My mother died from ALS, a neuromuscular disease. In short, it basically stop your brain from telling your muscles and nerves what to do. It doesn't sound painful. And physically it's not that painful. But the suffering and humiliation that comes from loosing everything one thing at a time until you die a slow death is infinite. It's what nightmares are made of. You become paralized, trapped inside your body. Your brain in tact while your body deteriorates. Loosing the ability to talk, eat, breathe use the restroom, anything and everything.
Experiencing ALS has been so traumatic for me. My every memory is tainted with images of my queen suffering. I'm still very angry. Very hurt. Confused. Why my mom?
I pray that I find her in another realm in a dream. Only she can set my heart at ease.

My favorite picture...The words “I love you” don’t seem to be enough anymore. They can’t express the joy I feel when I am with you, or the moments my heart seems to disappear from my chest, or how your smile radiates through my whole body and warms my soul, or how you holding me not only puts all the broken pieces back together but also reminds me what it feels like to be safe, or how the simple touch of your hand can carry the weight of the world for five seconds so I can breath, or how when I speak to you it is like speaking to your soul, and how when I look in your eyes I literally get lost in the moment, how hours turn into seconds, and how absolutely nothing makes sense in my life except for you….
I love you isn’t enough for me to tell you, you deserve that and much more!....♥️

It's been 3 days in a row that I've been dragging my feet to work and at work and so in such a state of mind I was driving to work when this song came on and it simply put a smile on my face and started melting away my stiffness and giving spring to my steps.. praise God for a full day of speaking life.. "Some days life feels perfect
Other days, it just ain’t workin’
The good, the bad, the right, the wrong
And everything in between

Yo it’s crazy, amazing
We can turn our heart through the words we say
Mountains crumble with every syllable
Hope can live or die

So speak life, speak life
To the deadest darkest night
Speak life, speak life
When the sun won’t shine and you don’t know why
Look into the eyes of the broken hearted
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope
You speak love, you speak
You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh
You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh

Some days the tongue gets twisted
Other day my thoughts just fall apart
I do, I don’t, I will, I won’t
It’s like I’m drowning in the deep

Well, it’s crazy to imagine... ... ..." ... Toby Mac, Speak Life

She tilted down her head
And brushed her hair aside
And lifted up that holy gaze
Beneath her eyelids

Her beating lashes were the witnesses
That heared every single word she wouldn't say but I did

And when her lips came back to touch after a smile
She pressed them way to hard
So they would reconcile

Her colour darkened to a red of every blood of every dead
That ever dare to love another

To love another

She pulled her head aside and when she brought it back
I swear a little broken girl was in her body

And as a prophecy when tripling down her cheek
She said: 'Don't you think to fall is just a study'

And when the star upon her lip was glued to mine
All of the stars in all the skies had to aligne
And then we both just disappear
In every hope, in every fear
Of what it means to love another
To love another

Another day was passing in her eyes
I realize she never said 'I love you' in the morning

But as I watch the sunset in her gaze
There is a haze of night that doesn't want to be the warning

And when she parts her lips to wet them with her tongue
They bear the weight of every word of every song
And I am left there in that chair
Without a clue, without a care
Insisting I could love another

I could love another

Her eyes were searching in my soul
I asked her what it is she saw
She answered only with her silence

But then she took a pen
And drew an entire ocean made of glue
And it is fallen words to island

And through her lips I felt the beating of her heart
I name the upperlip the end the lowerlip to start
I said I never let them touch
I want to open them so much
We'll never stop to love another

You'll have your heart broken and you'll break others' hearts. You'll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you'll cry because time is flying by. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely, and love like you've never been hurt. Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. You just have to live life to the fullest, tell someone what they mean to you, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone's hand, comfort a friend, hold someone's hand, comfort a friend, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt, and smile until your face hurts. Don't be afraid to take chances or fall in love and most of all, live in the moment because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back."||

•happy Friday! I hope that you had a fantastic week and that you have a relaxing, rejuvenating weekend. Spend it with people who make you happy and do things you enjoy. I adore you so much more than words could ever say. Keep smiling.❥ - via #Regrann

Happiness isn’t even remotely close to describe how I feel without you home. If this is what living is like without you I just idk. At some point you become so broken, you wonder what it was like to be whole again. Dad I miss you even more than all the words i can use to describe it. I miss your laugh, your smile, your voice, the way you mess with me and Bernie. It’s been 51 days.. and at some point you’re coming home, but I need you to come back not just come home. Wake up please. It’s not getting easier, and it’s not getting anymore bearable.

I just want to take a minute out of all our busy lives to just say... No matter where life takes any of you, no matter what happens, I am always in your corner. Right or wrong, I love you for who you are not what you do. Tori, Mikie, and Gina. Life is a Mother Fucker, we all know that. I can't imagine my life without y'all. Anything I needed you were there, no matter what time of day or what was going on in your lives. When I was happy, sad, scared, lonely, drunk, broken hearted, hungry, stressed, sick, lost, you name it. The point is, when nothing goes right, I've always had you to turn to. I just want you to know I'm here for y'all.
Toe-Toe, We always disagree, but honestly, where would I be without your laughs and words of wisdom. "When mom and dad don't understand, a sister always will." -Unknown. You know me better than I know myself, I love you.
Wiener, I miss you and love you so fucking much! Tuesday can't come fast enough. We have so much to talk about! "This life is what you make it. No matter what, your going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth... Sisters make the best friends in the world... Just because you fail once, doesn't mean your going to fail at everything. So keep your chin up, and most importantly keep smiling (that beautiful smile), because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about." -Marilyn Monroe.
Bubba, I don't even know where to start... I guess I can just say some of the best nights of my life were with your crazy self. You have a heart of gold and I'm so glad nothing has ever changed that. I just want you to know right or wrong, I love you, Porky. “When I look at my brother, I see two things. First, I see the next place I want to leave a rosy welt. Second, I see a good man who will always be there, no matter how hard life gets for me or him. Then, I get out of the way because I realize he’s coming at me with a wet dish towel.” - Dan Pearce
I'm so proud to be your baby sister. You showed me right from wrong (I just have to do the opposite of what y'all would do), love and hate, and most of all what family is. I LOVE Y'ALL! (P.s. Kyle isn't as curropted yet. I'll try to keep it that way.)

For the many not following @sarahgracespann, I wanted to update all my incredible #freshfitnhealthy community & supporters out there😊
.
If you’ve been following me for any given time, you know I’ve talked about contentment during the season of singleness before, how I had been single for 4 years before meeting this one, how I was trying to trust God despite my heart longing to find my person to walk life with, and how hard it would be for me to ever trust a man with my heart after many things in my past. I thought it’d be years before walls would come down.
.
But one very random Wednesday night, I met this amazing man who renewed my hope in finding that person for my life. Each of our first 4 dates, we lost track of time, talking for hours about what’s important to us, stories of our pasts that have shaped us, and what we’re looking for in someone.
.
I always thought people were crazy for saying they knew within the first few dates they wanted to marry someone, but that has become part of both of our stories. We laugh as we look back and both have texts to our families, saying “I think she/he is the one”, before even officially dating.
.
I remember the words (that I’m extremely cautious to use), “I love you”, almost slipping out of my mouth on our 4th date, and having to hold myself back from saying it because helllllo that’s crazy. Little did I know, he felt the same.
.
When @brandonmeck asked me to marry him this weekend, there wasn’t a single doubt in my mind that he was and will always be, my person. Not because I think our marriage one day will be perfect, or because our relationship is perfect now... but because I know he is the one I want to forever fight for and fight with in this crazy thing we call life. Despite having so many walls up and such a lack of trust in men until meeting him, I am fully confident he feels the same way. #FutureMrsMeckelberg
.
God is incredibly faithful, and I can only smile as I see how He has used all my broken pieces, shortcomings, valleys, and tough seasons, to lead me straight to this man of my dreams. .
Engagement story to come!

This is something I never thought I would be posting. My heart has completely shattered into millions of pieces. No parent should have to ever endure this pain and I have no words that could ever console Anabel and Harold. I still can’t believe this, to think I was going over this beautiful princess birthday pictures and debating which ones to post on my page, and to hear this news. I’m in tears, I can’t compose myself because it is just not fair, and I don’t mean to question God, but why?!?!? Why is it that these tragedy’s happen, why?!?! I am honored to have met this beautiful and happy baby girl, honored to have been apart of her 1st birthday and I will forever remember that beautiful smile! Please share, and repost the link I have above, anything helps! May the Lord give this family the strength to get through this tragedy, I wish it were just a nightmare that they could wake from but all I can ask now is to please Pray for them! 🙏🏻

If you only knew about the storms she’s walked through.
If you only knew about the pain and heartbreak she’s overcome.
If only knew about the times where she’s been broken.
The times where she’s felt worthless.
The times where she felt manipulated.
And the times where she felt like just giving up.
If you only knew, you’d probably question why her heart is still so big.
Why her smile is still so bright.
Or why her energy is so electric.
If you only knew, you’d probably question why she’s still so kind, so generous, so caring, so loving.
If you only knew, you’d probably wonder why she’s so strong.
How she’s so resilient.
How she’s such a fighter.
And how she always finds a way to get back up.
If you only knew the entire story — if you only knew who she really is, and what she’s really been through.
Then maybe, just maybe, you’d realize that everything that makes her beautiful is made up of everything you can’t see. 🖤💫

Thank you @allthings_possible for your beautiful words, for your big heart & for your continual support & love. 🙏🏻

looking into these kids’ eyes was one of the most difficult things i’ve ever done in my life. they aren’t the same kids i taught in November. they are broken, hurting & traumatized but also beautiful, strong & resilient. i don’t know how anyone can look in their eyes & not see that something has to change. i will never forget their eyes.

after the studio we moved to Jaime’s house to surprise her parents, Fred & Jennifer. the smile on their faces & the joy they exuded when i walked in is something i’ll hold in my heart always. Fred is a rockstar & face of this movement. you can feel Jaime’s strength propelling him forward. his energy & determination ceaseless, he insisted we leave a space for Jaime in our photo. Jennifer is the rock & silent hero. my connection with her is deep & something only Jaime could orchestrate. i spent my time there with Jaime’s dog on my lap listening to Jennifer tell stories about her remarkable daughter. the more i listened the more i came to understand that Jaime is her parents most extraordinary attributes personified. ✨

you’re supposed to pass on your Giving Key once someone needs it more. but how could any of us ever pass on Jaime ? but Jaime is so much more than her physical being. she has become a synonym for big words like change, love, fight, strength. one day, someone will need her as much as we do, but for now, we’ll hold on tight. 🧡 #msdstrong #orangeribbonsforjaime

Three years ago today I left Nicaragua and headed south, alone, to Costa Rica, tired and broken and exceptionally anonymous, running in the direction of a story - any story - that I could call the new one. That morning I sobbed on the side of a hill above the ocean, both tears of farewell and hello for what I knew was about to unfold, these words from Shantaram piercing, echoing, insisting that I listen... “Any good thing that dies inside can rise again, if you want it hard enough. The heart doesn't know how to quit, because it doesn't know how to lie. You lift your eyes from the page, fall into the smile of a perfect stranger, and the searching starts all over again. It's not what it was, it's always different. It's always something else. But the new forest that grows back in a scarred heart is sometimes wilder and stronger than it was before the fire. And if you stay there, in that shine within yourself, that new place for the light, forgiving everything and never giving up, sooner or later you'll always find yourself right back there where love and beauty made the world: at the beginning. The beginning. The beginning.”

I’ve been putting off posting this (and posting in general) for quite a while now because I didn’t know how to represent what’s been going on in something as miniscule as an ig post, let alone what to say, or if I should say anything at all. However, I have come to realize you can’t fix something if you don’t recognize it’s broken or put REAL effort into fixing it. So this is the beginning of my efforts with the hopes of atleast helping someone that can relate to my situation, or atleast help someone to understand my situation. I took this photo about a week ago with no intentions of posting it. I came back to the photo later on and it broke my heart to see the sadness in my eyes and remember that day & being unable to even crack a smile. This is me RAW no makeup, no filter, and in the middle of one of the most emotionally challenging periods of my life. I have found myself struggling to even post a photo because it almost hurt even more feeling everything I feel then posting a single glimpse into my life with a few words to caption it and there you go there’s my update on the past few months that is really not accurate at all. Today I decided I want everyone to have the real update and even if you don’t want to read this whole thing I just want you to take one thing from this and it’s that everyone is struggling in their own way and it’s so important to just be nice to people. Every little interaction you have with someone can affect them psychologically. One conversation you may forget in 10 minutes will be the conversation someone replays in their head for a week straight stressing, analyzing, wondering where they went wrong. Everyone has an entire world inside them that we could not even begin to understand not to mention we all live in the same universe that is extremely real and very harsh at times so the least we can do is give each other a damn break. And most importantly, give ourselves a break. Which is something I’m still trying to learn and believe will always be a work in progress. I’ve realized one of the hardest things in life is trying to fill someone else’s cup when yours is empty. So please just love yourself, love others & be patient. Thank u

But really Mars, stars sometimes fade and die faster than they are made in this modern world of circumstance and trend and this unending toxic cycle that shows you hate just as you start celebrating. What then you ask? Songs. Music. You’ve always had songs, you just needed time to find the words to them. You’ve always had music, you just needed both the good and bad times to stumble upon the right chords. In music you will find the power to dance on broken glass and laugh at the wildest of winds without a care in the world. With music you will always have a way to reach a heart in ways that don’t need to prove themselves, in ways maybe no one could ever know or even hardly imagine. Musicians, artists...ah without them this world is but breathing. Remember that when you hit the stage. Today your music is yours. Go launch that album Mars. We’ll all be waiting for that no-eyes smile followed by the high pitched laughter that means you feel at home ❤️🌟 #StellarGrandAlbumLaunch #MarisRacal #PinoyPopRock

I write for a living, but I struggle to formulate words about the death of this vibrant soul. It stings. Every nerve of my body burns like fire in resistance, as if talking about her loss will make it real.
__
I boxed up everything in my sister's apartment on Friday. She kept this photo in a frame at her desk everywhere she lived since the beginning of high school, and I was so happy to find it! There's a gaping Chanel-sized hole in my heart, but surrounding myself with her stuff at least feels like an attempt to fill the gap. It won't stop the wracking, relentless flood of my tears as if the very core of my soul is trying to escape and find her. But it's something.
__
There are days when I don't want to move, because I can't fathom walking into a world that you aren't in. Then there are days when I take the boys to the park and I get distracted. I even smile and laugh and love. And then I fall into deep despair as I realize that we're making new memories you aren't part of. I have my faith. I have my family. They will carry me forward. But I am broken. I'm shattered. I'll work SO hard to put the pieces together somehow, because I know that's what you'd want. But I will never be the same.

“Light breaks where no sun shines;
Where no sea runs, the waters of the heart
Push in their tides;
And, broken ghosts with glow-worms in their heads,
The things of light
File through the flesh where no flesh decks the bones. -
-
A candle in the thighs
Warms youth and seed and burns the seeds of age;
Where no seed stirs,
The fruit of man unwrinkles in the stars,
Bright as a fig;
Where no wax is, the candle shows its hairs. -
-
Dawn breaks behind the eyes;
From poles of skull and toe the windy blood
Slides like a sea;
Nor fenced, nor staked, the gushers of the sky
Spout to the rod
Divining in a smile the oil of tears. -
-
Night in the sockets rounds,
Like some pitch moon, the limit of the globes;
Day lights the bone;
Where no cold is, the skinning gales unpin
The winter's robes;
The film of spring is hanging from the lids. -
-
Light breaks on secret lots,
On tips of thought where thoughts smell in the rain;
When logics dies,
The secret of the soil grows through the eye,
And blood jumps in the sun;
Above the waste allotments the dawn halts.” -

“Twombly has his own way of saying that the essence of writing is neither form nor a usage but only a gesture which produces it by permitting it to linger: a blur, almost a blotch, a negligence. His ‘writings’ are the scraps of an indolence, hence of an extreme elegance; as if there remained, after writing, which is a powerful erotic action, what Verlaine calls ‘la fatigue amoureuse’: that garment dropped in the corner of the canvas. In Twombly, the letter is not ‘childish’ in form, for the child applies himself, presses down, rounds off, sticks out his tongue in his efforts. Twombly’s hand seems to levitate - as if the ‘non-word’ has been written with his fingertips, not out of disgust or boredom, but out of a kind of caprice open to the memory of a defunct culture which has left no more than the traces of a few words.” -

I promised a longer post and here it is. I almost lost my mom. For the past three years, my mom has been battling kidney disease that turned from bad to worse. For the past three years, I haven't been able to breathe. At first, I thought I was strong enough to help her through. And then I thought ... I promised a longer post and here it is.

I almost lost my mom.

For the past three years, my mom has been battling kidney disease that turned from bad to worse. For the past three years, I haven't been able to breathe. At first, I thought I was strong enough to help her through. And then I thought I had found the reserve strength, hoping it would get better.

But it kept getting worse. And I didn't know if I was strong enough to help her through it, because I didn't know if she would be able to. My mom is my rock. My best friend. My role model, and one of the best people this world could ever hope to know. I wasn't the one who was sick, but it hurt me too. Because when someone who you love more than life is ill, you can't help but walk around like a ghost, hoping for the best and trying not to give voice to the worst.

And when I thought I couldn't go on, I turned to my @onepeloton family. Maybe not in so many words, but every happy face, every achievement made by you all, it kept me putting one foot in front of the other when I only wanted to collapse. And as I put one foot in front of the other, the impossible happened.
My mom found a kidney. She got a transplant.
She got better.

And I could breathe again.

My trip was the first time I have been able to breathe easy. My mom is alive, gardening, eating the foods she loves and we have time I thought I was losing forever.

I feel strong again. And I have broken through a years-long dark tunnel to emerge in the light, feel the sun warm my face, and know it's the same one shining on my family and growing their garden.
So I meant what I said. To those going through a struggle that seems endless: I see you. Life is a wheel of chance, and sometimes we are at the top of the wheel, and sometimes the bottom. But we travel together, and if we can extend a smile, an act of kindness, patience...we can help each other through.
Because I know you all helped me. You helped my mom. You made my family whole. And for that, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you.

There can be so much tragedy in a smile; such desperation in embrace
We all ache for a taste of humanity
As the widow, for one last glimpse of her beloved's face
We all long for security
Sanctuary, belonging
What then prompts the heart of stone
Often the object of overlooked affections
To slash and burn, before the harvest reaps what was sewn
To look half-themselves in the eyes
See the scars on their skin
And continue to not pay fucking attention
I can't stop paying attention!

Like street lamps, we glow so dim
Shattered people, shatter hopes
The four walls you shut me in
Don't be misery's company

If only more of us would only choose
To look back, contemplate those springs of youth
Recollections of laughter
Recall that sense of wonder, when nothing else seemed to matter
(Running through rivers, swimming in fields of sunflower)
Time has a funny way of coercion
Tricks us into thinking that our past dreams
We're only passing lunacies, better scattered to the wind
Lamenting, "I'll never love like my first, though I've forgotten their kiss
I'll never truly be happy, though I can't remember the joys of heaven"
I can't stop paying attention
I swear I'll keep remembering!

Like street lamps, we glow so dim
Due to the shade in which we're placed
The four walls you shut me in
Homes were never meant to be prisons!

So every time I pick up a mic
I pray my words only serve to remind
This life is what we make of it
Though we can feel so trapped in our own minds
From every morning's breath, we can choose
End the cycles of abuse
I'll embrace the vulnerable
I'll embrace the broken
We can only know what we're shown, and I know that Love is worth the risk
Blood is thicker than the water of the womb
Let me kiss the scars on your wrists
And no matter who has told you differently…

You are worth everything
You are worth everything.

No words can measure the amount of love I have for this Queen. Such a beautiful person both from the inside and out. A true definition of an angel who needed to be closer to the Lord Almighty, as well as her Grandmother and Father...🙏🏽💚 As a little girl who grew up on her music, remembering the times she was alive, I'm so grateful for having such a humble, warm hearted, generous and respectful role model to look up to. She taught me the definition of how a woman should carry herself in a dignified, sexy, yet classy manner. She was more than just a singer, model, dancer, actress and entertainer. Her personality alone could outshine and light a smile on anyone's face. And yet having all the fame and fortune that she so rightfully deserved, not once did she ever forget her roots or where she came from. Family meant everything to this kindred spirit, and as a fanbase I can honestly say we are probably if not, the most closest knit, loyalist fans out of everyone. The empty void we've been carrying within our broken hearts, yet her mark still embedded within our beings, touching us in ways we'll never forget.

One of the photographer's assistants happened to work with me at a coffee shop, and she decided to bring my proofs to the store and show them to my coworkers. I walked up and overheard her and another person saying how I "wasn't pretty" and how much more attractive my fiancé was than me. And when they finally realized that I had come in the front door of the shop and could here them, they said "I mean your NOT pretty...... but..... um.... well, you are a nice person and stuff...." and the conversation ended. I carried that dumb interaction with me for years and years. And I let it freaking define me and have power over me, and I hid from having photos taken of myself for a long time. I wish I could go back in time to 19 year old Stacie and remind her of what is true: None of that stuff matters. It has taken me 32 years to be comfortable in my own skin. Stretch marks and all. My nose that is long and bumpy? Broken several times, the most recent event being when my son head butted me: A battle wound from the trenches of parenthood. My gummy smile? I get that from my dad's side of the family, along with that dimple. My hair that never can be tamed by straightening irons? My mom has the same hair. So does my daughter. It is in my DNA. And I could almost cry as I think about the way I viewed myself for all of those years, because now I look at my two amazing daughters, and I want to protect them from those feelings. I'm trying so hard to remind them that loving themselves matters. Your heart matters. The words you say matter. Hard work matters. And those deceptive feelings of self loathing that creep in and hold you hostage, they suck! Don't let them control you! Today I woke up thinking of how far my life has come since those days working at Starbucks. And, I'm going to try to not waste any more emotional energy on the negative things people say, and instead focus on ways to lift other people up.

To live and die in LA, where everyday we try to fatten our pockets
Us niggas hustle for the cash so it's hard to knock it
Everybody got they own thang, currency chasin'
Worldwide through the hard times, worrying faces
Shed tears as we bury niggas close to heart
Who was a friend is now a ghost in the dark,
Cold hearted bout it Nigga got smoked by a fiend
Trying to floss on him, blind to a broken man's dream,
A hard lesson, court cases keep me guessin',
Plea bargain, ain't an option now, so I'm stressin'
Cost me more to be free than a life in the pen
Making money off of cuss words, writing again
Learn how to think ahead, so I fight with my pen
Late night down Sunset liking the scene
What's the worst they could do to a nigga? Got me lost in hell
To live and die in LA on bail

To live and die in L.A.
It's the place to be
You've got to be there to know it
What everybody wanna see

To live and die in L.A
It's the place to be.
You've got to be there to know it
What everybody wanna see

It's the City of Angels and constant danger
South Central LA, can't get no stranger
Full of drama like a soap opera, on the curb
Watching the ghetto bird helicopters, I observe
So many niggas getting three strikes, tossed in jail
I swear the pen the right across from hell
I can't cry 'cause it's on now,
I'm just a nigga on his own now, living life thug style
So I can't smile, writing to my peoples when they ask for pictures
Thinking Cali just fun and bitches
Better learn about the dress code, B's and C's
All them other niggas copycats, these is G's
I love Cali like I love women
'Cause every nigga in LA got a little bit of thug in him
We might fight amongst each other, but I promise you this
We'll burn this bitch down, get us pissed

I’m living... despite the will to lay down and i think that might be the only eulogy that counts these days. 📷: @jamelshabazz

Words can't even explain how much we are going to miss you. Our handsome, beautiful, caring, loving soul. We are all so blessed to have had you in our lives you were a little ray of sunshine that we all adored. Our memories will last forever and we will continue to live life how you would have, I know you will be with us every step of the way.

We’ll see your smile in every ray
Of sunshine after rain
And hear the echo of your laughter
Over all the pain
The world’s a little quieter now
The colours have lost their hue
And our hearts are missing you
Each time we see a little cloud
Or a rainbow soaring high
We’ll think of you and gently
Wipe a tear from our eye

Everyday we will celebrate your life in our hearts we will remember our time together with happiness and joy.

Today we laid you at rest and I've never felt so heart broken. Fly high my little babe. Love you millions ❤️❤️❤️❤️

I hide my tears I cannot cry I shall be brave But the heart don’t lie. I miss you everyday. It’s still unreal. Surreal. This is your second birthday that I don’t get to sing “Happy Birthday to you!”. Your second birthday that I don’t get to prepare a birthday cake for you. Your second birthday ... I hide my tears
I cannot cry
I shall be brave
But the heart don’t lie.
I miss you everyday.
It’s still unreal. Surreal.
This is your second birthday that I don’t get to sing “Happy Birthday to you!”. Your second birthday that I don’t get to prepare a birthday cake for you.
Your second birthday ... and the rest of the days and holidays to come that we don’t get to celebrate anymore, because now ... you’re gone.

But this is not about me.
I never truly learned
what the words “I miss you” were
until I reached for your hand ... And you were not there.
I still see you though... but now only in my dreams.
You still help me understand
the things I didn’t know, or so it seems

So I’d be forgiving. So I don’t harbor hate.
Because my eyes are weary
from so much crying.
My heart is broken. I lost my faith.

Not a day goes by that I don’t see or feel anything and everything that reminds me of you ... and smile.
Or cry.
Or both.
Happy birthday in heaven, Mommy.
If you still do celebrate.
This would’ve been your 80th
This would’ve been great.
Mahal na mahal kita.
And I can see you still dancing in heaven
... my Dancing Queen.

It is with a devastated and broken heart that I tell you heaven gained the most amazing, brave, courageous, strongest most beautiful angel with stunning blue eyes that you could see from across the room and the biggest heart filled with love and compassion for everyone she met. She fought valiantly with courage and bravery which I have never seen before til her very last breath but she finally went to be with her Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. Mommy is finally pain free and no longer suffering and passed peacefully surrounded by all of us.
My mom is my hero and always will be. Remember her with a smile on your face because as sick and in as much pain as she was in during the last few months, she was always able to give a smile to everyone ( well except the physical therapist who mommy called “ The hall Walker “) The nurses and doctor Chan and every person on duty on that ward were in tears yesterday, there was not a dry eye on West 2B, that’s the impact she had on all of her nurses and everyone from cleaning ladies to the ladies that brought her food to the social worker and so on, EVERYONE loved mommy.
At 11:45 am on Thursday April 5th she gained her very well deserved angel wings and my life will never ever be the same. 💜 Mommy you are finally at peace and no longer in pain. We were very blessed to have had the very amazing compassionate nurse Kendra as your final nurse and Dr. Chan as your final dr as they loved you too and we could feel their love for you. I love you so very much mommy, with all of my heart and soul 💜
In memory of my beautiful, kind, generous mom please buy a stranger in need a sandwich or a coffee or just talk to them with kindness and compassion because mom changed the lives of hundreds of homeless, needy and abused and addicted people every Sunday for 15 years and if we could pass on her compassion to others then that would have made her happy.
Dr. Chan told us mom was classy, dignified and beautiful right til the end and he’s right she was so amazingly beautiful.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your love and prayers and support during this past year. I could truly feel your love.

“a year. it's already one year that you are not here with me.” Anna started to think while some tears started to fall over her cheeks. exactly one year ago due to cancer, the most important person of her life, her big sister Elsa, died. “I was there when it happened. I remember everything about that moment, the worst moment of my whole life...” the young brunette whispered crying, letting all her pain go “I was next to your bed and I was holding your hand tightly when you said your last words, you said that you loved me more than anything... and then your beautiful and pure eyes, blue as the ocean, closed forever. in that moment, when I realized that you were gone, when I realized that cancer won and took you away from me forever, I swear I could feel my heart broken, I felt empty as I never felt before. suddenly tears ran of my face and from that terrible day I've never been the same. you were the best sister I could ever ask for because you weren't just a sister for me, you were my best friend, you were my other half, you were the main reason of my happiness... and now that you are gone you can't imagine how much I miss you, Elsa... sometimes I need one of your warm hugs, sometimes I need you to wipe my tears, sometimes I need to see your smile, that beautiful smile I've always loved... and speaking of it, I hope you are smiling and you are happy now in Heaven with mom and dad, I'm sure they are proud to have a wonderful daughter as you. you've always been and you still are the most important person of my life, the most precious gift I ever had and the best thing that happened to me and I'm living hoping one day I'll see you again and I'll give you all the hugs I can't give you now. remember that even if you are no longer in this world, you will always be in my heart and that I will never love someone as much as I love you, it's a promise.”

Something horrible happened to me yesterday and I want to share it so if it’s happened to you you know you’re not alone and if it hasn’t so that you know this is a real problem. I was driving to Whole Foods to get dinner and was stopped at a red light. The arrow turned green giving me the right of way to make a u turn and I started to and a man in a truck started to turn right so I honked at him twice. I pulled into the store and got out of the car and didn’t notice the man had followed me into the parking lot. He pulled up next to me and said “learn how to drive you god damn motherfucking nigger” not the n word, but the word nigger. I got right back in my car and drove away, making sure he didn’t follow me. I drove to my hotel and broke down in tears. This was the first time I’ve ever been called that. It hurts so bad like having your heart broken a thousand times over. It was gut wrenching deep in my soul hurt and it still is today and will be every tomorrow and probably every day for the rest of my life. I didn’t leave the hotel again because I was scared to go in public but I have to today for work. I am shaking w nerves to go outside but I have my ever present smile on my face. I will not let the words of that racist asshole defeat me. I will continue to do the work I love of making the world a better place. Do not sit idly by and let racism happen. Treat others w love, dignity and grace.

Exactly 2 years ago today I was in a place I’d never been with a guy I’d sort of just met (but somehow felt like I knew forever), and his friends whom I had only just met on that trip. His name was Emil. We were wrapping up a road trip across Europe in Croatia for a festival called Dimensions, even though ended up spending more time in our Airbnb villa than at the actual festival.  During our last night at the festival, a few of his friends came up to me and asked me how long Emil and I had been together for. I gave them a funny look because to my knowledge, we weren’t officially “together” as he had never asked me out! I’m traditional in that sense - I like the formality of an actual ask. The next morning at the villa before my flight out, I brought it up to him and said, “You know we’re not actually together right? You have to ask me.” He looked at me, a bit dumbfounded but with a smile on his face, and then politely, sweetly, and adorably asked me to be his girlfriend. I smiled back and said that yes, of course I would be his girlfriend. That decision, albeit made whilst still pretty drunk from the night before, was the best decision I’ve ever made, because these last 2 years have been the most beautiful and magical years of my life. Thank you @emil.walker, for empowering me, inspiring me, believing in me, and for loving me for all my flaws not despite them. Thank you for being so patient and kind with me, for investing the time necessary to peel back all the layers in order to get to know my deepest self. I now navigate this world and this life with a heart and mind so wide open, because you have broken them open in the best way. Thank you also for being willing to squeeze into tight/awkward spaces for me when I want to take photos of you like this one. 😌 You are truly a gem of a human being, and you are worth the tens of thousands of miles I’ve flown just to be in your presence. Your love makes me feel like I can do anything - and that’s the best gift anyone could ever ask for. Cheers to 2 years of growth and adventures with the only man I want to grow old and adventure with! I love you more than words will ever be able to express. ❤️👫🇺🇸🇬🇧 // #love

So The last 3 Weeks have been Hard for my Family and I . Pain & Tears perfectly tucked behind the smiles and fake laughters. I was out of the country when my pregnant Wife Denise called and told me that she’s headed to the hospital and it was an emergency. I won’t lie my heart sunk because I somewhat knew what that meant !

I remember kneeling down and Crying to God to keep Her safely wrapped in His Warm Embrace. The worst news came in that the doctor couldn’t feel the baby’s Heart beat . We’d lost the baby, at 6 Months😢 So Close...So So Close
I Won’t Lie, It tore me to pieces because I couldn’t forgive myself for being miles away and yet my wife was going through this alone.

With a few hours to my gig, we spent most of the time on video calls and I Swear , Denise is the strongest woman I know l. Telling me that she’ll be alright and that she could handle it and I should keep my head up and grind .

The procedure to remove the baby was slotted for midnight, the same time I was getting on stage in Qatar.Not sure how I made it through the gig but God’s grace and Peace steered me through 🙏

My wife @deekingsky went through the procedure safely. I didnt get to see our daughter , whom Denise says looked so beautiful and peaceful. She managed to trace her hand prints on a piece of paper.. the only thing we’d keep with us in memory of a beautiful soul whom we never got to know but who made us smile everytime she kicked .😊 Gods Grace is forever sufficient, We’ve witnessed His peace, through His gentle whispers that “ He shall heal and mend the broken hearted. “

For the few that knew about it . Thank you for checking up on us , and always being there. We can’t find the words to thank you enough. @timadeka @karey82 @esther_wanjyru @murugyy Thank you for your prayers .God bless you Mightily .
Denise , I thought I was the strong one but clearly , You are the stronger one , and I Thank God for you on a daily . I love you to infinity and back.
It still breaks our hearts everytime Jamari and our daughter Zawadi ask where the baby went .... 😢 May God’s Will Be Done .🙏

Getting baptized in the English Bay ocean was a very beautiful, special, & significant moment in my life. I’ll cherish this day forever. To be granted the opportunity to publicly declare my love for Jesus means everything to my soul. If I’m being completely honest, this season of my life has been far from perfect. When I started going to Vivid church, I was in a very vulnerable & broken state. I was struggling to cope with my depression. My heart was in pieces due to an ugly breakup. I had been harbouring a lot of grief, bitterness, & pain. I was nowhere close to joyful. It’s as if my inner light was completely out. I felt lost, alone, & overwhelmed with negative thoughts towards myself/life. I felt helpless, worthless, & misunderstood. I was exhausted, discouraged, & struggled immensely to fight my inner demons. At one point I completely isolated myself.. even though loneliness is far from what I needed. I’m forever grateful that I woke up one day with enough fight & courage to get out of bed to go try a new church.. Vivid’s motto is “come as you are” & that’s exactly the support & encouragement I needed to lift my spirits. Jesus will always be my light during my dark days!! God will never stop providing me daily comfort & strength. I used to sob & pray endlessly to feel the inner peace I now feel. There are no words to describe the joy I feel to finally know what it feels like to be on the other side of depression. To feel alive again. To actually be my bubbly & cheerful self again. To be able to genuinely laugh & smile again. To see & enjoy all of the beauty of my life again. To know my value, worth, & potential again. I know my grandma who I consider to be my guardian angel is watching over me right now.. she’d be so incredibly proud of the woman I’m becoming. She was a woman of compassion, kindness, selflessness, beauty, strength, & faith.. I strive to be a little more like her each day. Thank-you to everyone in my life who shows me so much love & support! I feel incredibly blessed. ❤️ #JesusSaves

.
Eastern tribest lost their men,
Many went for the fire,
So much bones crushed and broken,
But hearts full of desire,
.
The youth of the Sire is gone,
Years swept all of his glory,
Leaving it only a flame in his song,
Sire came to accept giving his thropy,
.
Fire was the last thropy of the Sire,
Men deeply envied as they hailed,
Heroes tempted by the Holy Father,
Tried to claim it but they failed,
.
A mighty slayer came from west,
A brute, a savage against wrong,
Honesty carved on his chest,
And a melody resided in his tounge,
.
"All the pleasure you cherish,
All of it is a lie,
All of you will perish,
A century after you die,
.
With a little bit of light,
And a little bit of might,
I will go on and fight,
From dawn till the night"
.
Holy Father was repelled instantly,
With words as venom of a cobra's tooth,
Crying and spatting the word 'blasphemy',
He forbade this holy path to the brute,
.
Though the flesh of the Sire was old,
His solid judgement was right,
His fury was instant and cold,
It filled the holy fathers heart with fright,
.

Hey, Girl! You don’t see yourself the way others do. The way your friends do. Strangers. Kids. My beautiful friend “knows” she has stunning eyes, but she can’t see what they look like while she sips her coffee across from me... the sun spotlighting the fire out of them through the window. It’s ... Hey, Girl! You don’t see yourself the way others do.
The way your friends do.
Strangers.
Kids.

My beautiful friend “knows” she has stunning eyes, but she can’t see what they look like while she sips her coffee across from me... the sun spotlighting the fire out of them through the window.
It’s magic! They shine!

So I tell her.

Or another friend letting her hair down after a long and messy day of painting her house... Her bouncy waves cascading down her back.
Like, what?
How even?
Does she know how beautiful her hair is RIGHT NOW?

I tell her.

Or the Mom Singer getting ready backstage before a big performance in New York City... her daughter talking a million miles a minute about things no adult would really care about.
The Mom stops, gives eye contact, smiles and listens to her daughter jabber on.
Does she know how stunning she is in this sweet moment?
I tell her.
*
So what about the lady that tells YOU you’ve got beautiful skin while you’re shopping at Target. In your hoodie, on the verge of tears cause your skin keeps breaking out.
You need to hear her.
This is her gift to you.
Pay attention.

Or the cashier who tells YOU you’ve got the sweetest smile that lights up a room.
You need to hear her.

Or the kids you babysit who grab your hand and say they love you and want to be pretty like YOU someday.
You need to hear them.
This is a gift.
Pay attention.
*
A talented soul from across the pond turned a photo of me (taken on a day I felt so broken) and turned it into this amazing piece of art!
What? Me?
She didn’t see me the same way I saw myself in that photo.

I need to hear her.
*
A challenge for you (and me)
Instead of brushing off compliments, let’s pay attention. Words can be a gift we give to each other. Let’s treat them as such! Taking them to heart and, oh, I don’t know... believing them? (Try?) You are beautiful, you need to hear this.

And please, if you find yourself lost in the light of your best friend’s eyes... TELL HER
.
“You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.” (Sol. 4:7)

I make an honest effort to not be very involved in social media anymore. I personally don’t like what it’s evolved into. We’re all trying to stroke our own egos and get love from strangers to fill something empty. I’ve been very distant from everyone and everything the past several months. I’m going through a moment in life that I know won’t last forever. But for now it’s so heavy on my heart. I couldn’t sleep last night. So I went to a YouTube video by Tony Robbins hoping to capture even a handful of words that would bring me peace. And somehow they do. He explains that the only reason for pain, sorrow & depression is that what we believe in as our individual blueprint were not meeting it. I really saw my life much differently than where I am today. And even though I know what I have many would trade for in an instant. But that doesn’t change what I feel. I don’t want to look at social media anymore & believe that everyone’s life is so perfect. Because it’s not. I have everything someone would want and I still have a huge hole in my heart. When I was young emptiness was quick to be repaired. Because I didn’t have 3 lives depending on me for happiness. I came and went and lived to serve my happiness. Now, no matter what I feel inside I have to smile and keep going. Even on the days I’m holding back tears while singing to my son. Life is hard, love is hard. But we make the effort for what’s worth it. And when something stops being worth it, you know. Happiness is fleeting. Clothing, purses, homes, cars.. momentary happiness. But love, true love it should always be your strong hold. The place that returns your smile that’s broken. Or repairs the sorrow you feel. Never be with someone who makes you believe love is hard. Real love shouldn’t be hard. Pride is what’s hard. Not taking ownership of where you’ve failed. For anyone else out there that feels something isn’t serving you but rather you are doing all the serving I recommend Tony Robbins on YouTube. His mindset helps you realign your focus and remember your worth. ♥️♥️

This boy goes from a dark past, that left deep wounds. Not only physical but emotionally too. All of this started since he was little, his dad; drunk all the time. His mom, a drug addict, and his sister, that couldn't help him when he needed her. What happen in his past that made him who he was today? The lack of love his parents would have gave him, but never did. One day, all will come to an end, when his laughs and smiles won't be forced, when he'll be able to push does demons from his mind away. He'll be able to love, all because one girl enters his life.

I mean, you weren’t just A ROOMMATE, you were A FAMILY to me. You were one of the most random, fun, loving people I knew, who always finds a way to cheer me up and never failed. You never knew how to feel sad, or angry, but you knew how to live life to the extreme. You always told me to live today like there’s no tomorrow. Well the video explains what you meant. Everyone loved you, and everyone will always love you. I know you’re in a better place now though it’s so hard to accept that. But we can still feel your beautiful pure soul with your amazing smile that will never fade.
We still can’t believe what happened 😔my heart is broken into pieces 💔
All my prayers for you my love❤️ Now I have a beautiful angel watching over me. Until we meet again.
ALWAYS IN MY HEART ❤️
Rest in peace Alondra😔❤️

My #hopestory started six years ago when I watched my 10 year old daughter fall apart as she watched divorce wreck our family. She was lost, broken, and severely hurting. As I prayed hard over her, I watched the joy of life fall away from her and all hope fade. She began inflicting pain on herself (which counselors described as a way to feel intense pain because the body and soul feel so numb). As a mother, my heart was broken and I cried out to the Lord... and there He was... with HOPE in hand!❤️ Celebration Church had started a program where they allowed the middle school kids to help lead worship in the younger kid’s venues. Karli began attending practice on Thursday evenings. During this time the leaders spoke to the kids about the true meaning of worship, understanding the words they sang, and bringing glory to the Lord through the sound of their voice. Every week Karli begged me to go and when we would leave I could see a change... a twinkle in her eye... a glimpse of HOPE in her smile!! As months passed I began to see the transformational change that was happening in Karli’s heart! She continued to run back to the Lord in worship whenever life began to feel hard or confusing!! Our Lord and Savior revealed His amazing unconditional Fatherly love as she reached to Him over and over in song!! To this day, KIDs worship has a special part in Karli’s heart, for it is in these very moments that she felt His HOPE pour over her like the warm sunshine penetrating her skin and saturating her soul!! And as for this momma...there are no words!! #hopestory #thisishope

Mom, 32 years ago today you brought me into this world & I have loved you immensely ever since. You were my first love & will always have the biggest piece of my heart @michelemartin28 💕. .
I’m trying to smile today as you would’ve wanted me to, but all I really want is to fast forward through my first birthday without you & pretend as if it never happened. 😔.
.
I’ve learned how to smile again but behind it I’m lost & broken. It’s hard being strong everyday. My heart aches so much, not getting a birthday text & phone call from you, & to hear how much you love me.
.
Throughout these last few months since you’ve been gone, I’ve gone to your Instagram & occasionally reread what you posted last year on my birthday (swipe ⬅️). The kind, heartfelt, loving, & special words you had to say about me, never fails in bringing me to tears each & every time. Especially today, when reality hits that together we can’t celebrate another year of the life you gave me. I never would have thought my 31st birthday was the last birthday I was going to celebrate with you. I thought I would have you here for at least another 25 more. I painfully miss you every single day 💔. .
.
Thanks for always holding things together when everything seemed to be falling apart.
Thanks for all the times you picked me up when I was down, laughed at my jokes, & helped me chase my dreams.
Thanks for being my constant in chaos, my healer in hurt, & my supporter in uncertainty.
I love how you made the smallest moments feel like magic & turned the darkest days into something bright.

YOU WERE MORE THAN JUST MY MOM...
You were my laugh until it hurts person.
My always there no matter what person.
You were my heart healer & my cheerleader.
My nerve calmer & my problem solver.
You are my heart, my soul, & my forever best friend.
Thanks for loving me through the ups & downs in life.
Things always seemed better when we were together.
I’ll never stop honoring you, loving you, & missing you.
Today, & everyday doesn’t feel the same without you.
.
Wish We Had More Time.
Thanks For Giving Me Life.
Give Me Your Strength.
Be Good My Angel. .

Looks can be deceiving... ♥️ For one, by what I’m wearing, you might guess this was a breezy spring day (it was NY winter & I was practically frostbitten), but it was also taken while my life at the time felt like it was falling apart. The night before this early-AM shoot I learned news that tore my heart out. But I had to work. And my work often requires a certain state of being unlike my own. Was this fake? No. Work can be an incredible healer. And digging into it allowed me to tap into stores of happiness & strength that always belong to me — even when they seem nonexistent. Tho I dreaded it this shoot was a gift. For a short while I couldn’t wallow, when all I wanted to do was crumble. (Believe me there was a long period after of crying into my PJs while I slowly healed.) ♥️ Lately I’ve received thanks for my positivity, for spreading love & light to the extent that I can. I consider this an honor & privilege. Yet this has been one of the most difficult times of my life. I’ve shared holiday greetings, encouragement, laughs — while also crying into my PJs. Is it fake? No. Engagement w/others from my heart (that’s also coincided w/work) has been an incredible healer. It lets me draw on stores of gratitude & resilience that can seem impossibly far away. ♥️ I know it’s easy to think that a pic says 1000 words, but sometimes they’re not the words you’d imagine. It’s possible to be both grateful & grieving, heartbroken & joyful, down & rising, broken & thriving. It’s a practice. It sucks. It’s amazing. If you’re feeling awful (I know the holidays can make that worse) please know that there’s more in you as well. You don’t have to fake a smile, but snatch any opportunity to get one. You don’t have to post encouragement, but reaching out to help someone will help you too. And when you see dreamy IG posts know they only capture a moment of all our complex lives, & tell little of the story. We are more than a post can sum up. We are more than a win or loss can define. And awfulness passes (tho it swears to you it won’t). Grasp all the good you can, where you can. It adds up & eventually becomes the norm. Then it doesn’t. Then it does again. That’s life. For real. #tbt

“Even when it's rainy all you ever do is shine.”
.
Keeping a positive mind is easier said than done. For some of us it’s innate but others it has learned or taught - and in all cases it must be practiced.
Studies show that complaining leads to more negative emotions, decreased life satisfaction and lack of motivation.
US data suggests that having a positive attitude not only has a direct effect on happiness but also correlates with your financial earnings.

So how do you keep a more positive attitude?

Here’s 10 ways you can improve your positivity:

1️⃣ Keep a gratitude journal.
Write down 5 things that you’re grateful for everyday. Gratitude significantly increases happiness and reduces stress/anxiety/depression.
.
2️⃣ Reframe your challenges.
There are no dead ends, only re-directions. Try to see the opportunity in every challenge; it is forging strength and teaching coping skills.
.
3️⃣ Get good at being rejected.
Rejection is a skill. Chalk every broken heart and failed job interview as practice. It’s ok to be vulnerable. In order to win, you must risk “losing”.
.
4️⃣ Use positive words to describe your life.
How you talk about your life is how your life will be. If you describe your life as mundane or chaotic, that is how you will perceive it and live it.
.
5️⃣ Replace “have” with “get”.
Instead of I have to go to work, think I get to go to work. Your attitude evolves to being grateful for the things we take for granted.
.
6️⃣ Don’t get dragged into other people’s complaints.
Others will complain less without the validation of someone else joining them.
.
7️⃣ Breathe.
Breath helps calm us. Deep breathing soothes the nervous system and helps us “down-regulate” (parasympathetic).
.
8️⃣ Notice the righteous in times of tragedy.
Darkness brings light. In times of natural disasters, war, and trauma, people reach out to help, and showing compassion.
.
9️⃣ Have solutions for problems.
Positivity doesn’t mean that you are oblivious to problems. Positive people have constructive criticisms to improve conditions.
.
🔟 Make someone else smile.
Making others happy gives us a feeling of meaningful fulfillment.
.

Thank you for giving me the world. Thank you for always supporting your sons to pursue whatever we wanted. You grew up as poor as can be, but came to America and became a successful well respected CPA in the community. I remember mom telling me you guys used to eat spoiled rice because there wasn’t enough money to buy fresh food. You enlisted in the army to get money for college. You never relied on anyone. You made this all yourself. You’ve been a fighter ever since you were born. From fighting poverty, to being the first generation Chinese American out here, to your last days of surviving a stroke and heart disease, you wouldn’t quit. You outlived whatever the doctors would say. No matter how much pain you were in, you would always have a smile on your face and even joke around to lighten up the mood. You’re my favorite person ever. You’ll always be my best friend. You’ll always be my hero and the best dad any boy can ever ask for. Words can’t describe the pain I’m feeling as i type this, as it may be the most painful thing I’ve ever felt. I wasn’t ever sure about what comes after death, but now I hope that afterlives are real so that maybe one day we can see each other again, hang like we used to and get some of your favorite foods. You left too soon. I wish we had more time. I wish i said i love you more. I wish i hugged you more. I wish i could have told you all of this before you left. I’m going to cherish this amazing life you have given me and live the best life ever. I love you from the bottom of my broken heart. Rest In Peace... until i see you again. ❤️

Everytime we get hurt we add a layer to our defensive shell. Taking comfort in our disguise, we feel stronger. We begin to act the part of a chameleon as we fade into a shadow of our true self. Think of the last time you let loose and acted freely as yourself. What was it that let you drop your inhibitions?⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Repost:
It is with a devastated and broken heart that I tell you heaven gained the most amazing, brave, courageous, strongest most beautiful angel with stunning blue eyes that you could see from across the room and the biggest heart filled with love and compassion for everyone she met. She fought valiantly with courage and bravery which I have never seen before til her very last breath but she finally went to be with her Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. Mommy is finally pain free and no longer suffering and passed peacefully surrounded by all of us.
My mom is my hero and always will be. Remember her with a smile on your face because as sick and in as much pain as she was in during the last few months, she was always able to give a smile to everyone ( well except the physical therapist who mommy called “ The hall Walker “) The nurses and doctor Chan and every person on duty on that ward were in tears yesterday, there was not a dry eye on West 2B, that’s the impact she had on all of her nurses and everyone from cleaning ladies to the ladies that brought her food to the social worker and so on, EVERYONE loved mommy.
At 11:45 am on Thursday April 5th she gained her very well deserved angel wings and my life will never ever be the same. 💜 Mommy you are finally at peace and no longer in pain. We were very blessed to have had the very amazing compassionate nurse Kendra as your final nurse and Dr. Chan as your final dr as they loved you too and we could feel their love for you. I love you so very much mommy, with all of my heart and soul 💜
In memory of my beautiful, kind, generous mom please buy a stranger in need a sandwich or a coffee or just talk to them with kindness and compassion because mom changed the lives of hundreds of homeless, needy and abused and addicted people every Sunday for 15 years and if we could pass on her compassion to others then that would have made her happy.

Heart is broken. Thinking to myself Why him... what did he do to deserve this type of ending to his life book. I’m not questioning God but this kid had PLENTY of life left in his talented body.

This player never complained. Practiced hard and played tough every play day in and day out. Fought off double teams, ran down on kickoff, willing to make that block to free the ball carrier. Use his best pass rush to sack the QB. Did whatever it took to tackle the running back.
During my time working in the school, I never had a problem with him. He was NEVER disrespectful to me and always listened whenever I would talk to him.
As oldheads, we’re setting our youngbols up for failure! We aren’t teaching them how to live right! We aren’t teaching them how to break the cycle. Instead we’re teaching them how to shoot and kill and how to be “Tuff” on the block.

Seem, I’m sorry we let you down, I’m sorry your hood let you down, I’m sorry your oldheads let you down. I’m sorry your city let you down. I’m sorry
It’s difficult losing a player. Love you seem, gonna miss that smile that always lit the room.

Sometimes, the pain they feel is so much that words become unable to describe it. It becomes so painful, tears are unable to express it. It hurts them so much, no matter how much they scream and cry out loud, their voices are unheard. The pain becomes indescribable. It's just something that the heart feels. It tightens, it screams and it feels as if it has stopped beating. The heart continuously breaks and the mind stops working. The wounds, the scars the heart carries makes them feel as if it's not even there anymore.The pain that words, songs and tears are unable to express is the same pain these people feel everyday or have felt it once. A feeling that one feels after losing someone or something so dear to them. For you and I, this pain is felt when we lose someone dear to our hearts. But for these people, it is pain they have to bear every single day. Would you want to live every day of your life like this? No. God forbid. Never. Then why do they have to? Just because they are strong enough to handle it doesn't mean they should. I know we may feel useless and not know what to do during such times. But please, just know that, every little thing counts. The smile you bring to their faces and the happiness you may bring to their hearts can cover up and help heal their wounds. No matter how little it may seem, help mend their broken hearts. Stand with them. Speak out for them. Tell them, they're never alone. At the end of the day, we are family. We are one. This is what it means to be a Muslim, not someone who alone prays and reads Qur'an. I may be weak alone, but with you I'm much stronger. Let us wipe their tears together. Let us make them smile. Let us hold their hands and pull them back up. Together. #Pakistan #prayforlahore

This is the last post and gonna be the longest also chessiest. Is that the word? Idk. Anyways mark let's start off when we met. I dont remember the exact date but I do remember me commenting on your intro when u posted it like 2 hours ago. But when I first talk to you I knew there was something special and no I'm not saying that to make you feel special or something. I do wanna make you feel special all your life tho. But I'm not lying ,, there was something about you that I loved. I didn't wanna date anyone at all because I have gotten my heart broken so many times but I fell for you and I couldn't get up. I really couldn't. When I found out you liked someone my heart was beating so fast because I thought it was someone else. I was with Vernon at the time when you posted the 'I'll tag my crush' pic and you can even tell him if I was worried that it wasn't me. But any who when I found out it was me , oh god , I was sooooo sooooo happy! Like I just wanted to kiss and snuggle you forever! Now we are at present time. I love you mark and I'm glad I'm yours and you're mine. You are only mine and NO ONE else can touch you EVER. I will never ever hurt you ,, all I want is to see that beautiful smile of yours. I wanna hear that handsome laugh/chuckle. I wanna see us happy together. Forever. I can't wait till the day we get married and have kids even if I'm thinking way ahead I still can't wait for those days. This is probably getting to long so I should stop it. Just let me say a few more things. Mark Tuan you are my one and only. You are my soulmate and I don't ever wanna lose you. Let's make a promise that no matter what happens we'll be there for each other okay? I love you so much ,, words can't even describe how much my love is for you. I'll end it here. I love you and I always will. I hope you like your three chessy posts pabo 😘

not sweaters but scattered dreams
words sewn with ink blood and sin
the journey, so hard it's been
so tell me
from where do I begin

let me tell you about this melanin
sitting so abundantly in the pores of my skin
screaming and whispering
the tales of my ancestors
who worked in the field
without a particular shield
then why...
do they tell me to get healed

do they not see
how my roots embraced the earth
and today
the earth embraces me

do not tell me how well I play with words
and how much fun would that be
because these ingenuously interwoven letters
are what remains of my heart shattered
into shards so small
it's hard for me to gather
so I bleed
I bleed onto this parchment
to figure out the arrangement
but they do not understand.

you do not understand
how I'm less of a fancy poet
and more of a broken she.

so here is my ode to all the women out there
aching and shaking
bleeding yet faking
today I hope you feel
my words are here to heal
these wounds, i promise they will scab
these cracks, honey they will seal.

for all the times you were told
your body is not a perfect mould
and that these pimples and scars
make you any less than stars.
behold.
no more.

no more of this insanity
let's undo this tragedy

i will dare to dress
whatever i may
sometimes thorns,
petals some day.
but surely to suppress
how you self-righteously transgress.

I will untwirl my tongue
and undo my neat bun.
And will be gone the girl
who lives under duress.

so the next time they dare enough
to bury me, you & our clan
into the filth of their approvals and bans
i promise we will together
feast upon their ignorance
let out an un-ladylike burp
and smile.

for courage
is from where our journey began.

Check out what it’s like to get a job!

One of the coolest parts of Ozark Lakes is that you get a job, and I worked at McDonalds! Yes I may have consumed too much of their iced coffee and french fries, but I also learned what it meant to trust the Lord in taking steps of faith.

You don’t always have to have the perfect words! Remember who it is that is working through you! The Lord is intentional in where He puts you, so sometimes you just have to be willing to go out of your comfort zone for the sake of the gospel.

I asked that she would be praying that the Lord give me joy, even when it doesn’t make sense. That’s exactly what He did! That day at work was the busiest day we had experienced so far, and while the environment was very tense, I was so at peace and joyful, and I knew that that was not coming from me- It was God. Because He had given me that, I was able to encourage my co-workers on a day where they were flustered and didn’t think they would see a smile. It was just so cool to see God’s faithfulness in that moment and see how He can use a broken person like me to be a light to people, even in the little things. 💛 #crusummermission #ozarklakes @ozark_lakes

~14 March 2018. 2:36am.

How do we live our lives,
with lumps in throats,
aches in our hearts,
clenched fists,curled toes,
How do we live,
when we are barely alive.
.
How do we look at our loved ones,
and through sealed lips,
and gritted teeth,
locked by lies,
yet silent begging for the keys.
.
How do we tell our friends on the phone,
romantic overtures of our lovers,
whose words as knives
have skinned you to bone.
.
How do we smile for the class photograph,
when the bell echoes through a hall,
that reminds you—
of a bench left alone,
left unpicked for basketball.
.
How do we meet old friends,
to whom you have bared
your tender teenage heart,
A ghost from the past,
only to reappear
in a wedding gown.
.
How do we live with mothers and fathers,
or go on family holidays,
when behind closed doors,
have more families than one.
.
How does a violence so deafening,
Find solace in our silence.
of those who seize our bodies, minds,
And sometimes both
When we swore to kill the same,
for our brothers and sisters.
.
Why have we learnt to put
shackles on mouths,
carrying someone else’s lie,
living someone else’s fault.

If they lay a word on you,
A hand on you,
A look tad too harsh,
How can you save your words,
When every inch of you trembles to talk—

~Lekha Karthik.

“The power of abuse is in the silence its perpetrators demand. The cycle is broken by diminishing that power through exposure.”
~Catherine Miklos.

I hope you find the courage to #breakthesilence.💛 #qonwrites

You have taught me how to be strong, never give up & to spread love to all. We have always said you were the closest thing to a Saint here in earth, but now you are an example of a perfect angel in heaven. "We little knew that morning, God was going to call your name. In life we loved your dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone, For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide And though we cannot see you, You are always by our side. Our family chain is broken And nothing seems the same But as God calls us one by one The chain will link again." i love you Nana more than words can ever express. i wish "RIP" meant Return If Possible. 👼🏼

спасибо вселенной за невероятных людей, встретившихся на моем пути, за все безумные истории, за мои искренние улыбки. Спасибо работе, что закаляет характер и пинает меня уметь больше. Спасибо всем, кто рядом со мной, несмотря на расстояния и жизненные невзгоды @katedraw @maxim_get_out @kat.land @heykatedo @bigbarabum @indificum @mr__adler @tyotka_thatcher @super_chinese_peanut_butter @vantuz14 @bulletproofish - вы прекрасны и я вас люблю всей душой. Наверное, все сложности, беды, слезы, гнев даются нам, чтобы помочь найти себя, свернуть с неверной тропы и научится наслаждаться радостными моментами. Так что я не обижаюсь.
Вступаю в 2018, пусть разбитая, зато полная надежды и с самыми невероятными людьми за пазухой. С новым годом!
This year was like running with obstacles, where I am more of an outsider than a winner. I’m broken, my heart is smashed, sadness and fatigue swallowed me completely. BUT still…
I want to say “thank you” to Universe for incredible people I met on my way, for all crazy stories, for all my sincere smiles. I wanna say “thank you” for all my friends from NYC – @alkenz_ @sawyernottom @zoepolkadot @gamerogomez - different countries, different languages, but when we meet, we understand each other without words! Thanks to everyone who is near me, despite the distance and hardships of life - i love you with all my soul. Maybe, all the difficulties, misfortunes, tears, anger are given to us to help find ourselves, to turn from the wrong path and learn to enjoy happy moments. That's why I'm not offended.
I'm entering in 2018, although I'm broken, but still full of hope and with incredible people behind my back. Happy New Year and keep smile everyone! @marcocanteiro, um muito obrigada especial por me teres inspirado e dado a conhecer a língua portuguesa! Não me lembro de ter um sorriso tão grande e de me rir assim tanto sem ti. Eu sei que não significo para ti, mas muito sinto falta de ti. Desejo-te igualmente um ano cheio de magico-coco-banana assim como tu! 🎄

Whether you saw it coming or not, a break up is never easy. In fact, more times than not, a break up can cause you to question everything in your life. You may find yourself questioning whether you’re good enough within other aspects of your life that you normally would be confident in. If you allow it, rejected feelings endured from a break up can send you into a state of depression. Even though everyone around you is telling you that it’s going to be okay, your heart is uttering something different. However the reality, even though it may not feel like it, is that one day you will be able to put the pieces back together and feel whole again.
The worst thing that you can do, while going through a break up, is to allow yourself an indefinite period of self-pity. It’s understandable to be heart broken and sad; however, it is inexcusable to allow the sorrow to take over your life. Without pain, you would never truly appreciate the glories of life and the feeling of true love. Try this prayer that you’ll find that the wise words cover the array of feelings and emotions you’re experiencing: “Lord, thank You for being You and for Your willingness to be here with me during this time. It's been difficult lately with this break up. You know that. You've been here watching me and watching us together. I know in my heart that if it was meant to be it would have happened, but that thought doesn't always mesh with how I feel. Sometime I feel angry, sad, or disappointed.

Please give me the strength to get through each day as my heart slowly heals. Carry me in your arms of love. Give me a personal sign of your presence. Restore my ability to smile. Give me back my energy. Clear the fog from my mind. Bring vitality back to my body.Help me to regain interest in life. Show me how to reach out for help when I need it.
I ❤️ you!

In Jesus' name I pray...”

...
Truth is. After my assault, so much of who I am was stolen. My sense of security. My confidence. My connection to my body. Control of my mind. Even the fearlessnes in my heart was overshadowed. To go from the most confident version of myself at 25 to the most broken a few months later was devastating. The depths of depression were abysmal, but I knew what life was like on the other side. The road to healing would be long, but that innate will to live a meaningful life still existed.
..
I have to remind myself to be gentle. To not compare the current me to the former me or dwell on the progress I feel was lost. I confirm my blessings instead. My healthy body. My creative mind. My tribe of women; my pillars of strength. The men who have shown me the better side of humanity. The side I trust wholeheartedly despite what I’ve been through. And my husband. Oh, my husband. Words will never fully express my gratitude for finding shelter in his heart. The warmest heart. The most precious heart of them all.
...
Sometimes we wake in the morning to the sun pouring in feeling like our best selves. Our truest selves. The one with our shoulders rolled back walking with our chin held high trusting every step. So much of my photography is remembering those remarkable moments. The ones that slap a stupid smile across my face because I’m just so damn thankful to live to see another day. For whatever reason, I felt that feeling today. So I pulled out the camera, stood in the sun, and practiced some of that posing juju @sorelleamore was preaching to her Iceland babies.
...
Self Love Sundays is so perfectly this.
Just me. Straight out of the camera. No filters. No edits. Finally taking a moment to see myself as others see me.
...
I see her shining. I see her standing in the confidence and beauty and grace she worked so hard to understand. I see her as my husband sees her. I see her as my mother sees her. I see her as my tribe sees her. I see the woman she has always been and that unshakeable smile. How I missed that smile. This is the confirmation she is still in there. Some days she shines brighter than others. Today she is as radiant as they come.

I posted this picture two years ago today.. I would post a different one, but this was the only one you said said liked. You always thought you were ugly, & REFUSED to take a picture, but daddy, Mahaliah & I always thought you were handsome. You left Mahaliah & I & this earth two years ago today. My heart still breaks. I remember our last conversation was about shopping & how I needed to guard my heart from boys. In fact, your last words to me were “I love you honey, if I could adopt you I would- be safe.” Then we pulled out of your driveway, I thought I would see you the next weekend....then that Tuesday came around & Mahaliah told me you had left this world. My heart sank, I was so broken. & then seeing my very best friend lose her dad & cry over it made me break more. Even though you weren’t my real dad, you loved me like I was your own. You knew I had a hard time opening up to people, but you managed to always talk to me about my problems. I remember you screaming timber every 5 minutes on the way to crossvile, & you break checking me every other 10 minutes. You always made me laugh and smile, & do I miss you. Mahaliah reminds me so much of you, you’d be so proud of her. I’m so proud of her & how far she’s come. You did so good. I’m so torn that you’re not here. I remember when my dad had a heart attack in may, I thought I was going to lose him, & I’m so fortunate I didn’t. But in that moment I felt what Mahaliah had felt, & it hit me so hard. You were everything to us, especially her. God used you in such a powerful way, you helped me find my very best friend, & grow a relationship with my own dad. You taught me that boys aren’t something to cry over & let me cry over them anyway. I remember you & Belinda texting me randomly that you love me, I miss those edits. I miss you. I wish it was a dream, I wish you were still here to watch Mahaliah grow into the beautiful young lady that she is, & to watch me grow into the overly emotional young lady that I am. I’m so glad that I know I’ll see you one day, heaven is so lucky to have you. Today we went to your grave, all we did was cry & hug, but I felt a sense of peace, as if you were there. I’ll always love you

Every noise, every shuffle is on my very last nerve, a head-on collision, my heart attempted to swerve
.
You, yes you, I’m talking to you, take a break from yourself, get absorbed in something new
.
I don’t claim innocence, I don’t claim mad, I use aggressive words, so I feel something other than sad
.
Round and round, does this cycle ever end, I have so much love to share, but to whom do I send
.
I warned myself, you’re a certifiable risk, I won’t run the other way, but my walk will certainly be brisk
.
All I want, is to tell you how special you are, I’ve never been so close to someone, yet felt so damn far
.
I still think of you, I even smile inside, I don’t expect anything in return, but I’m human, I would love to confide
.
I want to know why, why do you chase, but if I acted like I didn’t already know, I would be lying to your face
.
Like I said before, not innocent am I, these words have been spoken to me, even I’ve made others cry
.
There’s no blame, I’m not playing a game, at the end of the day, it’s just a reminder we’re all the same
.
I’ll make this short and leave you with this, even though I write a sad rhyme, you left me something to miss
.
I want to ask, how much longer do you think you’ll need, what will it take, when will you finally feel freed
.
I want to say, though you feel broken, don’t underestimate the joy you bring, because my heart was woken
.
Instead, I’ll look in the mirror, I’ll say these things to me, because if it’s love I seek, the change I must be

You don't know how much I missed you my queen , I've always been looking forward to see you again , you know something? The day before I posted my last post , it was the day I would see you for the first time ever live in my life , I did not even get the possibility to get a ticket , but see you shine in my country means already a lot for me. You cannot imagine my tears when I listened to your speech , I couldn't believe to have listened the most beautiful words I've ever listened in my life , but specially all the force with witch you came back , I think I've never cried as much as I did that day , I just woke up at 5.00 am to go to twitter and looking for hashtags , pictures.. Everything , just to see that smile that lights my face up every single day , and I missed it these long months. "If you are broken , you don't have to stay broken" that phrase is my new motto , why we have to shut up? Why we can't express ourselves? Express what we are feeling? We are free and we have to trust ourselves , we can't stay broken , we need a light to shine and to share our happiness with people we love. We are humans , we have feelings , we are free to express our feelings , I care about people too. I just wish you , Selly , the best things in life , we only have an opportunity to enjoy , cry , feel , love... we are here to make each other happy , we are beautiful inside and out and that's what it's worth it. I love you from the bottom of my heart Selena , Love you❤️

Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread, & the hungry have ceased to hunger. Even the barren has borne seven, And she who has many children has become feeble. “The LORD kills & makes alive; He brings down to the grave and brings up.
The LORD makes poor and makes rich; He brings low and lifts up.

Dear Dad,

Every year I stroll the card aisle wondering what card I would pick out if you were here. I read through them as if I am really going to get the chance to hand it to you, and like always, I don’t make it through one sentence before my eyes can no longer see the words through the blur of my tears.
And in that brief moment, as broken as my heart feels, I am also overwhelmed with gratitude that I was lucky enough to have a dad in my life that make holidays, birthdays, and father’s day so hard and yet, so wonderful.
There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t crave your wisdom. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t wish I could hear your voice and feel the reassurance of your smile. And there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t understand that I have to accept that the closest I will ever get to feeling like you are still with me is in the stillness of the night, when my eyes are closed, and I allow myself to remember.
In Sierra, I see your eyes. She has your emerald green eyes that always seem to have the perspective only the special few are blessed to be born with.
In Keris, I see your heart. She has so much empathy for the people she loves and all animals. Just like you, people are drawn to her and she’s never met a dog that didn’t love her. Only a special few are born with a heart filled with empathy.
In Rielle, I see your spirit. She loves music and it fills her body with an electric vibration that is contagious and brings a smile to the people that choose to watch her move and dance as though her spirit is free. Only a special few are born, already free.
When I look at myself in the mirror, I see you. And you are always there staring back at me... reminding me, to become.
I love you. Happy Father’s Day.
Love,
Your daughter ❤️ #fathersday #daughter #inheaven

That's why girl ,don't jump into another Relationship so fast. Don't be quick to get another Guy after a Break Up.. Because what I know is, you'll hurt the next Guy😢 . Relationship heart break is not like a Pimple Pain.. To forget someone takes time.. It takes time to let go.. That's why let time tell baby.😢 . At the end, you'll be the Happiest. You'll find the right guy when you're ready. Don't let sweet talks push you into getting in another Relationship quick.. Most important. Love yourself enough to never settle for S£X only.. if the Relationship isn't growing you then leave it. Its usless being with someone who doesn't build you.😢 . As a a young Brother to you. My sister, whatever heartbreak you're facing now. Will pass baby. Only you can do it.. Acceptancy.😢 . I love all of you ..chai wisdom will not kill me one day

FROM MY EYES: Marking up my 10th Humanitarian Aid Trip with my visit to #IRAQ

I arrived in Iraq during the last 10 days of Ramadan. Walking through broken city, distributing food aid with @humanrelieffoundation then visiting internally displaced families to find out about there experiences first hand and discussing there needs. •

Many told us about there horrific stories and what they had to face, the torture, there loved ones being killed. The city mainly being left with widows and many orphans.
I had met children who were still traumatised and who were too scared to smile. Many people had lost there loved ones and homes were completely destroyed. They had no daily basics, there daily struggle for food and many told us they were heavily reliant on donations from charities. •
Through the broken streets there were still dead bodies in the rubble. •
I remember one local man saying to me “You have a good heart”. I then asked him “What made him say that as he did not know me?”
He said “You went and hugged each and ever woman you met whether it was a food distribution or a house visit”. I responded: “I could see there was so much pain in there eyes and that they were at breaking point, but they disguised it with a smile they were trying to hold it together - Through the smile on there face I saw the pain that was hidden in there eyes.”

I have no words for what they had to faced and the great strength it takes to then try and overcome it and hold it together and now after all that having to deal with the aftermath and having to continuously worry on a daily basis on how you will feed your children. •
The conditions I witnessed in West Mosul was the worst I had ever seen. Every person I spoke to spoke about the atrocities they faced, the lashes and punishments•
West Mosul was a city occupied for 3 whole years by extremist group ISIS. Hundreds and thousands of people were used as human shields. Many people are now returning back to there destroyed homes. It is a forgotten city and that needs our help.

Love a soft person. The kind of person who kisses your soul instead of your heart because they know that your soul is where you keep your universe and your heart is just one star.

The kind of person who kisses your soul instead of your heart because they know that your soul is where you keep your universe and your heart is just one star. The sort of person who is told they are over sensitive because they have a more fragile heart.
Love a soft person. A human being who always has a kind smile for everyone, even when they do not get a smile back in return. Someone whose heart breaks over the condition of this world. Someone who always has a gentle word for those who have received the worst news they could in that moment.
Love a soft person. The ones who are positive, even in the worst of circumstances. Someone whose strength is not in bravado, but in their quiet. Someone who is strong for others because that is what is needed in that moment. Someone who is the moon that soothes instead of the sun that burns. Someone who sees the very best in people even when you think they aren’t worth it. The kind of person who always wants to do the best for those they love.
Love a soft person. The kind who looks at someone who is struggling, whether it is to open a door, or have lost their keys and will do everything they can to help out. Someone who tries, not because it is what they have to do, but because they want to do the best by you. A human being that is always willing to communicate and talk things through.
Protect a soft person. These kind of people are becoming endangered with words like ‘toughen up’ and ‘you’re so naïve’ and ‘they’re going to take advantage of you’. Someone who you can see is trying despite being broken themselves. Someone who is an easy target for ridicule because their heart is softer than most others around. Someone who is quick to apologise and fix things regardless of blame or fault.
Be a soft person. Be a cushion in a world full of rocks and hard places. Be a gentle soul where everyone else is jaded. Be that person. Because people like that are rarer and more precious than the rarest of jewels in this world.

You never knew you were a poet but your sun-kissed lips split and spit mischievous bliss through this moonlit mist, your words - never missed - their mark, remarkable, every remark able to disable the cliche fable of white fences and Green Gables, you Never Let Me Go, leaving me breathless ... You never knew you were a poet but your sun-kissed lips split and spit mischievous bliss through this moonlit mist, your words - never missed - their mark, remarkable, every remark able to disable the cliche fable of white fences and Green Gables, you Never Let Me Go, leaving me breathless - Gone With the Wind like Clark Gable, It Happened One Night and Started in Naples, you were a Teacher's Pet too, with me one became two - The Misfits, a Band of Angels, just the curve of your smile was a masterpiece from every angle,
Even with your head in the clouds you drew crowds around and i know sometimes I clown around but I'm serious when I say I'm still sifting through broken metronomes for the beats my heart skipped when you slipped yourself into the back pocket of my mind, no need to rewind, my watch is still stuck on the exact time we first met. My contacts couldn't hold contact with the glowing ocean in your irises and I-wish-this ship could sail…forever.
