headroom

This is a place for my head.

My teacher in elementary school once asked us where our favorite place was.

That time I answered that my favorite place was my bedroom because in there I could be alone with my thoughts and pillows.

As I grew up I realized that ultimately, it wasn't my bedroom which made me comfortable and free. It was my mind.

Today, I realized that there are two kinds of people I hate the most:

1. The Entitled
- those who think they are worthy of every privilege and right they can think about, just because they are as great as who they perceive themselves to be.

2. The Victims
- those who feel like the world owes them an apology for all the self-inflicted miseries they are going through.

I guess many people just grow old but never grow up.

I guess more people care about themselves alone despite of how they profess that they are also concerned about others.

My resolve is cracking. My patience is barely holding up.

But I need to remind myself:

I cannot break;
There's much at stake.
I won't complain;
I will stay sane.

Poem

E V E R Y T H I N G

Everything hurts, but it's okay.
Everything hurts, but there's a way.
It doesn't make sense as of now,
But all will turn out well somehow.

It's darkest before the sunrise;
You have to learn before you're wise.
It's not over, so do not quit;
It's not over, you will make it.

Just as gold is refined by fire,
We're tested so that we'll inspire.
We are tried so that we will grow--
So that we'll know how far we'll go.

In the end, we will make it through;
But for now this is what we'll do:
We'll take one step, one time, one day,
And make it count in every way.

Someday we'll see the glorious end,
And finally we'll comprehend
How everything went as it should;
That everything was for our good!

I wish I could tell you
How much I want to
Not think like this
And act like this.

Lucky you for being blind
But once you've seen
You can't unsee
And once you know
You won't forget.

You see, I've seen too much
And heard too much
And felt too much
That I can't help
But be too much.

TO BE A BIRD

rant

Oh, to be a bird and nothing else!
To live, and fly, and make it through.

Oh, to be free like no one else!
To rest and breathe, and still be sane.

OH HEY, FOR BEST VIEWING, YOU'LL NEED TO TURN YOUR PHONE
