It is going to happen
in silent and subtle ways.

It is going to happen
hidden from your eyes and theirs.
It will slowly take over
your life and your world
even as you go tumbling about
subdued and unsure
carrying on with your days.

You've learnt to live
with a few thorns
in your back
but often you get
roses out of season,
so it isn't all that bad
and there is hope.

It will come for you
and it will find you
because it is what you are
and you have called it
to yourself.

You are love.

It takes a long while to get here
to finally start loving yourself,
to see each day as a blank page,
waiting to be filled with new and random things.

Forget the score the world wants you to keep.
This is life in the free void
just life as it should be,
as you want it to be.
without being torn apart by judgements and anxieties.

If you were allowed to see yourself inside this void
what would you see?
If you could choose to live
as if nobody was watching you live out your life
what would you do?

"In some minds and hearts
youth arrives a little late
long after childhood has passed
there is an age for every man
when the soul yearns to be young again
and some of us, just like that,
stepping on our miserable, overgrown selves
manage to turn time back."

"When you get used to running away all the time,
after a while it is impossible to stay in one place
even if you don't want to run anymore.

It is exhausting trying to shrug off
one's own shadow."

"You know all that
wishy-washy, lovey-dovey
cute and cuddly warm stuff !

Yeah I need to see a little bit of that
every now and then
just so I can live."
