We cannot change the past and we can never know what the future holds. Our fates are out of our control but we still must try to do what is good and right. Love is the only thing that will remain when all else is gone. So hold onto those you care for and tell them how much you love them as often as possible.

and in the same way
my mother always told us
that paul simon
and cecilia
were waking up
in the afternoon,
i wish to teach you
that the world
is an okay place

and when you’re
thirteen years old,
and it comes on
in the car,
and you notice
that isn’t exactly
what the song

you’ll hear,
for the first time,
a gentle whisper of,
‘hey baby, it’s not
always rainbows
and butterflies’

but you will know,
already, without
me having to tell you,
that if simon
and garfunkel
can make a hit
out of it,
then so can you

and for the rest
of your life,
you’ll hear the song,
and everyone
will sing the right words,
except you

you’ll be the only one
whose version
details a couple
of happy people
who slept past noon
on a very
lazy day,
and i think
you’ll prefer
to sing it
like that

for my future daughter, j.f. (metaphorsandmadness)

My past has not defined me, destroyed me, deterred me, or defeated me; it has only strengthened me.
