I used to build dreams about you.
Your body is made of the same elements that lionesses are built from. Three quarters of you is the same kind of water that beats rocks to rubble, wears stones away. Your DNA translates into the same twenty amino acids that wolf genes code for. When you look in the mirror and feel weak, remember, the air you breathe in fuels forest fires capable of destroying everything they touch. On the days you feel ugly, remember: diamonds are only carbon. You are so much more.
And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
Logan babysits and hilarity ensues.
do one thing a day that scares you
i walked on a dark path through the forest tonight with my friend just because we were too scared to do it.
Bo Hess is my spirit animal.
and some nights i’m scared you’ll forget me again.
