Life has a way of giving you exactly what you need to grow. Blessings in disguise. Sometimes you need to completely breakdown to build yourself up again. Sometimes you need to waste your time to realize how precious time is. Sometimes you have to be cold so you can warm up again. Life is a balance of highs and lows. It comes and goes.

we set off 4 lanterns for you
4 letters like your name,
We lit them together,
All feeling the same,
4 like your day of birth,
2 days after you left this earth.
We watched them float into the sky,
As we comforted eachother
and asked ourselves why.
The tears came streaming,
We shared a cry,
Witnessing them carried away so high,
Forming different patterns, divine.
A shooting star flew in front of our eyes,
A gift from you from the after life.

You have constellations on your skin
Tiny freckled marks
Creating fire from within
and setting off sparks

How will you go out?
Some of us will ride off into the sunset on a horse, some of us will take the safe way and stay on course, some of us will get lost on our way, only to be found, some of us will turn into snow and fall softly on the ground. Some of us will grow real big wings and fly into the sky, some of us will stay on earth and ask ourselves why. The road is long but the trip is short, we've got to live in love, or something of the sort. One day we'll be judged like court, but the jurors are dimensional beings, masters of the tide, and we'll only get to transform if they see love in our eyes. So will you go out like a rocket? Will you float off like a ship? Will you travel the world with bright eyes and a busted lip? The world is yours and the world is mine, we're just on a journey through struggles, space and time.

Sometimes them certain people come around, those beacons of light in a world consumed in darkness. A spark of hope, to light the fire, of love and true desire. A break in the wind.

How buried is your brain
Is it so deep you've gone insane
Or is it centimeters from achieving fame
Whether it is or not you are not to blame
It could take your whole life to tame
Is your heart still beating
Is the flutter fleeting
Or is it planting seedlings
Is it big and strong
Or weak and wrong
Whether it is or not you are not to blame
It could take your whole life to tame
Are your eyes still pearly white
Or are your eyes full of fire and fight
With the light, you'll have your sight
Not every day but on quiet nights
Are they still breathtaking in a good way
I know it's hard for you to say
Whether they are or they're not you are not to blame
It could take your whole life to obtain

Invisible demons
Swirling through my brain
Some days they stay silent
Some days I go insane
They can be relentless,
Like cancer causing pain
A needle ***** to the finger,
Or a hundred heavy chains
Inside my head they're safe,
They've found their hiding place,
Comfy as can be, eating off my plate
Killing off my brain cells and feeding the beast, oh my what a mighty ******* feast
