The caged bird sings with a fearful trill, of things unknown, but longed for still, and his tune is heard on the distant hill, for the caged bird sings of freedom.
I don’t chase after anyone, If you wanna walk out of my life, then I’ll hold the fucking door open for you.
Find the things that matter, and hold on to them, and fight for them, and refuse to let them go.
Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.
Thomas à Kempis
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. Your really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
