Truth Thursdays | Today I Leave Behind
Leaving behind
Places
People
Pieces of my heart
It’s all I’ve been doing
I don’t want to leave
I want to return 
I want to pick up
I want to stay 
But today I am here 
So today I choose
Today I leave behind again
I choose to leave behind winter
I choose to leave behind the frozen air
The Frost bitten fingers 
The cold and heavy blanket of fear and loneliness
Today I leave behind winter and open my arms wide to embrace the spring and summer
Today I choose to breathe in
Today I choose to wake up and get out of the covers
Today I return
Today I am picked up 
Today I bask in the Son

Truth Thursday: I Am Here 6.13.13

I am here.

And I’d rather be

here

and here

I didn’t want to be here but the longer I stay here the easier it gets. The easier it gets, the more afraid I am of forgetting the place I once called “here.” It hasn’t happened yet, but I’m terrified of it finally happening. I keep saying that I want to go back, but I’ve moved around so much that I don’t even know what, or where exactly I want to go back to. 

I am here. I am a flower constantly being transferred from pot to pot. Is it because I’m growing too fast? Or is it because the last one wasn’t allowing me grow enough?

I am here. Lonely, cold, and wet in the Seattle rain. Afraid to call any place “home.” But this is my here. For now.

Dear God, 

"Morning comes and I have spent

Every decent thing I am
Pockets empty
Now it’s you and me
I’ve been foolish, rash, unruly
Taking pride in all I have
Taken from you
Now it’s you and me

This is Love
When I give my heart to
Everyone but you
This is Love
When I have turned my back
Away from you
This is Love
When I have left you for the
Selfish things I do
This is Love
That you would still love me, 
In spite of me

Seconds pass and I think back
To every time that I have said
I am sorry
Now it’s you and me
So can I say these words again
Even with the things I’ve done
I broke your heart
Now it’s you and me

Morning comes and I think back
To every time that I’ve said
I am sorry..”

Dear ______, 
These are my friends. We make music late in the night in empty parking structures. We eat. A lot. We talk about things that matter. We haven’t known each other for very long but they’re some of my favorite people in the entire universe. I’m about to move to different place soon and we won’t be seeing each other for a while. I’m really scared and I don’t want to leave. But I know that I’m going to be keeping these people forever. Whether they like it or not. Whether time and distance likes it or not. 
When you find good friends, you don’t let time and distance come in between you. Ever. 
Love, 
Mom

The good times and the bad times both will pass. It will pass. It will get easier. But the fact that it will get easier does not mean that it doesn’t hurt now. And when people try to minimize your pain they are doing you a disservice. And when you try to minimize your own pain you’re doing yourself a disservice. Don’t do that. The truth is that it hurts because it’s real. It hurts because it mattered. And that’s an important thing to acknowledge to yourself. But that doesn’t mean that it won’t end, that it won’t get better. Because it will. Cite Arrow John Green (via themadyhatter)

Such beautiful sadness. It was perfect. 
But I just hate endings.

"Don’t be alone, Doctor."
