The Last Place You Go

You are gathered here today to say the last good things

And isn’t that the worst part

That on a day like today

We want you to say good things.

The Last Fall

Perhaps you only find out at the end of your life that happy is as good as it gets.

And there’s nothing that lasts that can be anything more.

Maybe looking for more is like going to the edge of a cliff, and walking into the beautiful view.

The Moments That Matter

Remember the person that you are, in the moments that you aren't.

The Hard Way

If you want good things, don't get distracted by easy things.

The Light Of All Stars


Follow your star.

Because yours is the only star that you can follow.

Everyone else’s stars might shine brighter or sit higher in the sky.

But do not get distracted or try to follow stars that aren't your own.

They will lead you places but they will not be the places you’re meant to go.

Only your star will take you where you’re meant to go.

If your star takes you through a storm, then go through the storm.

If your star takes you into the deepest ocean - then swim.

Because only your star knows where it must go.

And how it must get there.

The night is long and sometimes, your star will be hard to see.

Be patient and close your eyes.

It is always there.

It is waiting for you to follow it.

The Ocean Of Noise

I'm worried that if I suddenly disappeared, no one would know.

Their expectations of me have become a shell and so it doesn't matter whether I'm really here or not, a shell can be empty inside

So if you know that I'm here.

If you can see me.

Here's to you.

The Place The Light Strikes Red


I write down every reason to be afraid on your wrists, and below my eyelids, where the light strikes red.

You might get addicted to someone. 

You might get addicted to being alone.

You might get your heart broken. 

You might have to mend it yourself. 

You might die.

You might live.

Even though it’s dangerous to live.
