life brings you to unexpected journeys but love always brings you home because home isn’t a place, it lies in the hearts of the people you love the most.
minds were not developed to be closed. the imagination is not meant to be limited. the heart is not meant to be tamed. youth was not meant to be forgotten. faith is not meant to be weighed. bodies were not meant to be caged in. broken boundaries are experience, they’re a sign of living.

when you grow up or spend your life constantly having to defend yourself, it infects your mind and begins to dictate how people treat you – friends, family members, lovers – and it’s what you’ve become accustomed to because it’s what you’ve always dealt with so it’s what you’re used to and you just allow it to keep happening. unless you’ve been in this position for some significant part of your life, you don’t get it. you don’t know what it’s like to constantly have to be on the defensive side of things.. to be told what you are, who you are, to be filled with craziness, negativity, doubts, worry, guilt, insecurities.. to be muffled and screaming within. your mind becomes a crazy whirlwind and soon your words and actions follow. the only way to stop it, is to put an end to where it stems from.
if you do not end up in the next chapter of my life – it is your fault. not mine. and i hold no guilt for it. i am not going to defend who i am or my position in my own life or anyone else’s, ever again. i could give a damn what you think and even more so, i’m not going to let the craziness of any one individual or group of people infect my life or my mind. your poison is your own to bear should you choose to. it’s not my burden and i’m tired of holding your weights, your thoughts, and your opinions.
sometimes the decision to end some force of power or friendship, the decision to leave, or the decision to change and take that initiative to really change is such an eye opener, that you can’t go back from it. and the best part is, you don’t want to.
just a song of inspiration while writing this piece.
