I never thought I’d see myself
Beg someone to stay
While asking someone else
Why they are still a landmark in my twisted world
- Friedrich Nietzsche (via theglasschild)
- John Eldridge (via awelltraveledwoman)
I meant to write “poetry”
And instead wrote “piety”
Lately I’ve been thinking
That you can only have one
Or the other.
What’s in store for me in the direction i don’t take?
“… the moments when everything is open, when all options are present, and all is undecided – mere destinies unfolding. Our choices shift into one plane of existence, the extension of every path still available, until we pick the red tie instead of the blue; harbor anger instead of compassion; attempt to fix it or break it; and all our possibilities collapse into the singular of what is, rippling outward from the moment of decision to affect our lives in ways unknown… The noise at the back of our mind wondering anxiously, What’s in store for me in the direction I don’t take?”
