Sprint for Normalcy

My fingers approach these letters timidly as they have not touched them in quite a long time.
My hand twitches as it points towards the words it has chosen to create. My mind stretches and it’s rusty limbs crack as out of shape thoughts put on their running shoes.
Not much meaning can be made as I have been trying to disappear to no avail. Apparently once you come into existence there really is no way out; not even existential vacations. I have been cheated and Ill informed before entering this unforgiving relentless world.
You can find me under books and beside my cat. You can find my metaphors all hunched awkwardly on cover letters and inside emails never returned. You can see my precious head if you look really close under my parents expectations. You may think I am joking. I probably am.
I probably am enjoying the fact that I am lucky in some weird twisted socially unacceptable way. I possibly know my worth too well to throw my self at any eyelash batting opportunity. I maybe had no idea that I would be the last one standing holding on to whatever I have been preaching ever since I learned the essence of a meaningful and happy life. I may be the one who gets away from the dream eating, ambition decreasing, wallet fattening career.
I may be forgotten. So I pick up a suitcase filled with words and sprint after that train.
We’ll see.

To Friendship

Let’s take ourselves back to that freedom of a young summer so forgiving of our limitations. Let’s stay in that fast car and dream of endless music. Let this companionship rest its head because we will not let go. Let it discover you softly and lift your soul as it whispers and fixes you. Let it see you and light your every step without permission just like sunshine brightens a dark day.
Let’s face this world and leave no stone unturned. Let’s go on a limp and jump right in together. Let’s hush the noise of a complicated world and be young for today, brave for tomorrow and wise for eachother.
When we leave dont be sad. When we seperate dont worry. When tomorrow comes dont cry. When the noise gets louder dont scream and when the day fades don’t lose faith.
You are powerful and you are courageous. You are blinding light and flowing energy. You float and you make peace with every soul you meet. Do not deny yourself the potential of an overabundant heart so eager to love and to give. Do not undermine the passion you contain and the joy you spread. Do not close your eyes to a life so full of beauty thirsty for your sight.
I think of all of you as i write wanting to ignite those flames and start a fire in your shy souls. I think of myself and i write to remind myself there is no going back.
So shine my loves and give this world what it needs. Open your hearts and release your pains never hold them in. Take the leap even if it seems too far down, just take a step back, press your feet and run forward, let your blood boil with excitement and soar with life.
Let’s remember the trance and the moments, let’s find eachother around every corner and beneath every fear, let’s not be defeated by people or expectations or poisonous words. Let’s make a pact that we will live so viciously and marvelously, our journeys will be nothing but extraordinary.
