21. Studying to be a teacher at Western Washington University. I love the sea, Harry Potter, Gilmore Girls, quotes, pretty pictures, and reading.
Here’s what our parents never taught us:
You will stay up on your rooftop until sunlight peels away the husk of the moon,
You will fall in love with train rides, and sooner or later you will
A woman will kiss you and you’ll think her lips are two petals
You will not tell anyone that you liked it.
You can leave if you want, with only your skin as a carry-on.
All you need is a twenty in your pocket and a bus ticket.
You will lie to everyone you love.
One day you’ll wake up and realize that you are too big for your own skin.
Your body is a house where the shutters blow in and out
You are a hurricane-prone area.
But it’s okay. I promise.
Get scared. It will do you good. Smoke a bit, stare blankly at some ceilings, beat your head against some walls, refuse to see some people, paint and write. Get scared some more. Allow your little mind to do nothing but function. Stay inside, go out - I don’t care what you’ll do; but stay scared as hell. You will never be able to experience everything. So, please, do poetical justice to your soul and simply experience yourself.
