.Nothing I ever say makes sense.
People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway."
- Mother Theresa (via kushandwizdom)
I wouldn’t compare her to the sun,
and yet, my whole life revolves around her.
And of course I am scared to get closer,
How can I be sure I won’t simply burst into flames when my arms wrap around her?
I don’t understand why I put her in the center of my everything,
If she is the sun and i am the earth, then we’re simply not supposed to be.. together, or close,
And there are so many stars I could calmly admire,
But I’d let all of them turn into ashes just so I could make a single wish.
And I don’t know what I wish for,
if it’s my arms around her,
Or hers around someone who makes her truly happy,
Because the closer we get the more scared I get that I could never be enough for her,
maybe she’s not so much the sun but rather an entire universe, as wide as a desert and as destructive as the sea,
but more beautiful, more breathtaking.
And really, I don’t know if I’m drowning or choking.
But if I’m just another planet, lost in the entirety of your galaxy,
Then tell me why it is that you, my sun, my ocean, my desert and my universe, said that you often cried because of me,
Just how am I supposed to get what you mean
when you tell me I’m the most important person to you,
When you ensure me that you think about me as much as I think of you,
that you care.
How could I ever understand that?
After all I’m just another little planet, easily destroyed and forgotten,
Living with the illusion that there’s something between you and me.. other than space.
And maybe, just maybe, once the sun explodes and the universe doesn’t exist any longer,
And there’s just a pile of ash where I used to be,
Somewhere within a big nothing,
maybe then the wind that no longer exists will carry me to you, and we’ll finally be, - broken and torn into pieces, standing alone within a big nothing, - but we will be together,
And if not, the place where I used to be will be left with only regret and yet hollow of anything..
Anything other than the thought,
That we don’t value the existence of the sun and the universe enough,
Cause when we look at the sky, we’re so blinded by its beauty, That we turn blind.
What I’m trying to say is
I thank you with my whole heart,
For simply existing, my love.
