We live in a world fueled by coffee and
motivational quotes-
we subsist on both to fuel our lives,
codependent on words…
we are reliant on the wisdom and musings
of others-
some words speak to us,
some shoot directly to the heart and
into the soul,
where they bind with every dream and
hope that we’ve ever had,
while others are merely letters on a
screen, in one eye and out the other,
perhaps just mutterings that we ingest to
convince ourselves that our personal worlds
are not as standard as they seem-
how many of us truly live that wisdom?
the only way to find out is to keep on reading…
until we are the writer behind those random
quotes,
until we are the ones living the words that
we’ve read, and spoken, and written*
