“There’s always going to be bad stuff out there. But here’s the amazing thing - light trumps darkness, every time. You stick a candle into the dark, but you can’t stick the dark into the light.”—Jodi Picoult (via kari-shma)
“You know, it’s been said that we just don’t recognize the significant moments in our lives while they’re happening. That we grow complacent with ideas or things or people, and we take them for granted, and it’s usually not until that thing is about to be taken away from you, that you realize how wrong you’ve been, that you realize how much you really need it, how much you love it.”—One Tree Hill (via kari-shma) (via quote-book) (via floatingclouds) (via happythings)
All around me are familiar faces Worn out places, worn out faces Bright and early for their daily races Going nowhere, going nowhere Their tears are filling up their glasses No expression, no expression Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow No tomorrow, no tomorrow
And I find it kinda funny I find it kinda sad The dreams in which I’m dying Are the best I’ve ever had I find it hard to tell you I find it hard to take When people run in circles It’s a very, very mad world mad world
Children waiting for the day they feel good Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday And I feel the way that every child should Sit and listen, sit and listen Went to school and I was very nervous No one knew me, no one knew me Hello teacher tell me what’s my lesson Look right through me, look right through me
And I find it kinda funny I find it kinda sad The dreams in which I’m dying Are the best I’ve ever had I find it hard to tell you I find it hard to take When people run in circles It’s a very, very mad world … mad world Enlarging your world Mad world
finally breathe. I can stop trying now. I don’t need to feel like I need to impress anyone anymore. Well, I can impress myself, at least. But the fact that I can stop trying, it’s a breath of fresh air. The feeling is still there, but I have stopped caring. Thank you. It’s finally over.
