There comes a time that one has to stop avoiding and start facing.

Whether it be by force or choice, 

it happens one way or another. 

It's just so arduous to remember the conversations you'll have

with a person that you got too close to. 

Ignoring things that you might like a bit too much. 

Or people that you might like a bit too much. 

Maybe there was a point that I could've fixed it seamlessly without 

drawing attention to how I was really feeling, 

but I'm not all that certain I'd want to. 

It;s like those times where you really don't want to make a decision 

so you just kind of let the universe decide for you.

But then is it really the universe making that happen?

It's just stopping and letting time go over your head,

long enough for you to formulate a logical way to go about it. 

Sure, by then it's too late, but you know yourself a bit better. 

And at the end of the day that's all that should really matter right?

Because in the end all you have is yourself. 

If I could do it differently I don't know that I would. 

Dreadful to always say that almost everything is bitterweet,

but it truly is. 

People are always saying everything because 

they constantly glare at what they believe is the bigger picture of their lives.

But, in reality, they're still only working with a sliver of what's really going on everywhere else.

Perhaps that is the origin of stress. 

It's so much easier to take things one day, or even one minute at a time,

and this is a known, but people insist to do the inverse. 

There are so manty tasks that a person attempts to do in a day

because of the strong concept of life's brevity. 

Life is and always will be the longest thing that a human can experience. 

Yet there will never be enough time to do everything. 

Never enough time for parents to teach their children, 

to see all of the world. 

In youth, people run from the things that they are afraid of, 

and later on, they become those things. 

I don't know if that's necessarily tragic,

but I do know that change is what a man must do to truly become fearless.

But since a man will never stop changing he never acheives it...

Perhaps he was never meant to stop running. 

Human Dignity + Compassion = Peace.
