The Torment

"Others may have
A home, who knows, love, peace, a friend.
The whole, black and cold loneliness
Is with me.
This until when?
I only have for consolation 
That the eyes will get used 
To darkness."
Fernando Pessoa


"Determine that the thing can and shall be done,
and then we shall find the way."
Abraham Lincoln

You Learn

"No matter how many pieces your heart was broken,
the world does not stop for you to fix it.
So plant your own garden and decorate your soul
instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers."
Wiiliam Shakespear


"Birds ... scream at the top of their lungs in horrified hellish rage every morning at daybreak 
to warn us all of the truth. They know the truth.
Screaming bloody murder all over the world in our ears, but sadly, we don't speak bird."
Kurt Cobain

Station to Station

"Life is a strange inn
from where one usually leaves dizzy
and our bags are never quite ready
and our bills are never on time."
Mario Quintana


     "Nobody can build the bridge for you to walk across the river of life, no one but you yourself alone. There are, to be sure, countless paths and bridges and demi-gods which would carry you across this river; but only at the cost of yourself; you would pawn yourself and lose.
     There is in the world only one way, on which nobody can go, except you: where does it leads?
Do not ask, go along with it."
Friedrich Nietzsche


"The dawn enjoys
The nights I long for you.
It laughs at me, 
The end.

With open petals,
I expose the pain magnified 
By drained drops.
Why was I planted 
In your garden?"

Weeping Grief

"The bitterest tears shed over graves are for
words left unsaid and deeds left undone."
Harriet Beecher Stowe
