The World Woke Up












Please don't open your eyes.

The world is wrong today.

I don't want you to see it.

Those dreams of burning cars, of bankers crying in the streets, of the earth shaking, they're not dreams.

Just stay warm for now.

Just for a little while now.

Before it hits.

Before it takes.

Sometimes you just have to wake up, the smile of a stranger, the greetings in the waitingroom might seem condescending. They can comfort you more than you realise.

Breathing fresh air in different places makes the world spin; I love you.

But don't worry my dear,
i'll stand beside you no matter what will happen with this world..
Just stay calm in your dreams..

I love you too. You are my favorite version of fresh air. That is all I can think to say. For now.
Love,
Me

But I have to open my eyes. The world has always been wrong. I have to try and make a better dream come true.

oh this hits home
this completely hits home, because this is me.
i'm the one who creates my own cloud of happiness, because i don't want to face the horrors of this world. I don't want to face the fact that I can't even walk down the street without the fear of something happening to me. or stay home alone without fearing that somebody is going to break in and kill me

but we can't run away from things.
one day, i will face them. but not today
oh, not today.

Sometimes you've just got to close your eyes, hold on tight and believe.

But the world is never wrong, you're just looking in the wrong places!
A father just watched his son hit a home run, he's terribly proud. And at the hospital, the most beautiful baby girl was placed into her mother's loving arms. Down at the school yard, someone fell, and right before they started to cry their new best friend rushed to their aide.
There are ways to stay warm while hiding from the sunlight. But why not walk into it, stretching your arms to see how close you can get?
Live.
It's worth the ride.

I write this way
It's nice to know that someone else out there feels the same things I do

I like the world I create in my head better.

My dreams have already come true. My eyes are wide open. Are yours? Me.

I keep trying to hide from reality. It just always seems to find me. But I do see the beauty in my dreams. I want to keep it safe because if they see what I think is beautiful, it will be taken from me.

Don't forget about the millions of men, women and children starving to death in Somalia.
Today is very wrong. But I guess its never really been right.

It's never been right.
<3 My prayer goes out to all human beings hoping for a better life for their children and themselves. Let hope be with you to strengthen you through these though days. Not seeing staying in bed as an option for change <3

Sometimes I'm torn between two feelings : concern about what will happen in the world in the future, because I am young and frightened of what it will be like when I grow up, and I feel guilty sometimes because I don't do enough to help fighting all those things - climate change, hunger etc. The other feeling is the one I've had since my birth, that of a happiness and confidence in me that can never go away, and love and trust in other people. I try to focus on the second one but I know you can't hide yourself from the bad things forever and someday you have to grow up. It's such a beautiful and sad world.

If I'm in a Matrix then, why cann't I choose who I want to be with, where, when & how? I hate waiting, I hate what happen & I hate you for making me suffer. I succeed in forgeting you once but unfortunately, it doesn't happen twice.

i don't want to see the world today, for I don't see myself loosing him, the only one I love, could ever love or want to love

Anonymous said...

The only one you love or could ever love? Give me a break. You're a liar and only care about yourself.

Wake up and open your eyes. I certainly won't sugar coat anything for you. The one you love, he loves someone else. Always has.

Loosing him was certain right from the beginning. It doesn't matter what you want. Me.
