But when has life ever been fair
when have i ever got what i really wanted
with all my heart
when have people who i really loved
stayed with me for eternity
when has my smile survived long enough to believe in joy
when have i enjoyed the flight without enduring a sudden fall.. i'm not saying that i've never seen light
but i've never seen only light
the darkness has been there
clear and pronounced
threatening to consume everything remotely dear to me
and oh dear! it has always been true to its words
which was gone before i could identify it
before i could really feel it
that's how it's been
Don't be that person who says "ugh! i just don't like him/her. i mean, i don't have a reason, after all, you can't be friends with everyone." well, i like to think that "i just don't like him/her" is the uncontracted form of "dislike" and to me, "dislike" is a subtle type of hate and no, you don't have to be friends with everyone but i also believe it takes more than likeness to be friends with anyone (my opinion).
i know we exist in a society that's constantly trying to prove us wrong for every belief we refused to share but i believe we are more knowledgeable and opinionated than a society that's desperately trying to pitch us against one another. sometimes, i look around and realize how true it is that love could heal the world. we don't have to be bffs to celebrate one another. we don't have to belong in the same circle/clique to appreciate one another. lifting others in words and actions doesn't send anyone right back down! hate is such a burden. love is light and lightweight. the only woman i wanna be better than is the woman i was yesterday. the only woman i want to be bolder than is the me that was timid yesterday. i should be able to say "i see you sis, damn! you're the hit!" without feeling a fishbone trapped somewhere in my epiglottis.
i think we can just appreciate one another and cheer each other on without unnecessary animosity. life is crazy you know - we struggle to find love within, without and around 🤷. . . when you appreciate someone today, do it because you mean it not cos you're trying to do it for the culture.
you don't show love "for the culture." it should be "the culture." 😉 love is the most important circle. 🖤
