Souls Searching, Serving and Sacrificing

"Everyone’s making everything up There is no one in charge except for those Who pretend to be No one is coming No one is going to Rescue you Mind read your needs Know your body better than you Always fight back. Ask for it Say you want it Cherish your solitude Take trains by yourself to places You have never been Sleep out alone under the stars Learn how to drive a stick shift Go so far away that you stop being afraid of Not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something Say yes if your instincts are strong Even if everyone around you disagrees Decide whether you want to be liked or admired Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out What you’re doing here Believe in kissing."

"But for the man who watches the leaves trembling in the wind’s breath, the rivers meandering through the meadows, life twisting and turning and swirling through things, men living, doing good and evil, the sea rolling its waves and the sky with its expanse of lights, and who asks himself why these leaves are there, why the water flows, why life itself is such a terrible torrent plunging towards the boundless ocean of death in which it will lose itself, why men walk about, labor like ants, why the tempest, why the sky so pure and the earth so foul – these questions lead to a darkness from which there is no way out."

"Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them."

"I was a man who thrived on solitude; without it I was like another man without food or water. Each day without solitude weakened me. I took no pride in my solitude; but I was dependent on it. The darkness of the room was like sunlight to me."

"The sun inside of him rages like wildfire and he is gold gold gold and he is scorching the skin of my heart, yet still he pretends that he is safe for me to love, that his hands are gentle, that his fingerprints won’t be seared into the notches of my spine. The sun inside of him could set the kingdom ablaze; he knows this, he does. And he still asks me to love him, to face the flame. Find me in the ashes."
