Do you know that every time you’re near
Everybody else seems far away?
So can you come and make them disappear?
Make them disappear and we can stay…
I am trying to find the courage to be tender in my life. I know that violent people are weak people. Only the gentle are ever really strong.
Free will, though it makes evil possible, is also the only thing that makes possible any love or goodness or joy worth having.
There was an episode, one of my favorite moments in Star Trek, when Captain Kirk looks over the cosmos and says, ‘Somewhere out there someone is saying the three most beautiful words in any language.’ Of course you heart sinks and you think it’s going to be, ‘I love you’ or whatever. He says, ‘Please help me.’ What a philosophically fantastic idea, that vulnerability and need is a beautiful thing.
Small green heart, engraved on a dollar bill
Tell me could it build a whole universe?
Can it speak or answer your prayers like you hope it will?
We are afraid to care too much, for fear that the other person does not care at all.
And I know there will be mistakes that I will make, but I know none are worse than chances I don’t take..
Hoobastank, “Right Before Your Eyes”
As well as the insight which my personal experiences has led me to.
All of us are searching for an open arm
Well it’s a shame how I curl up in the dark
when it’s the same words
making me run for cover to Your arms…
