William Jake Hobbs
Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.
— // Louise Erdrich, The Painted Drum LP

Nearing the end of this break and looking back, it blows my mind the decisions that I’ve made and how much those choices have affected my life.

letting go of what was important,
finding what I needed,
holding it close, too close,
being so conceited,

breaking the connection,
feeling the pain,
denying natural selection,
forcing solitude,

learning who I am,
developing a plan, 
determining what I need, 
denying those that are weak.  

The moment is always your’s/
Allowing you to be set free and you’re held/
Only by the moment, only in that moment/
Where you can do some of that living in its entirety/
