Stepping On Hearts

CKHuy1

It was never that my old ways

Of spontaneous deception weren’t serving me

Materially

They could get me whatever I wanted

But sooner or later, the rip tide comes

Thrusts you onto the ground, face full of sand

The sobs seemed unending

Grief

The force of it all nearly killed me

These poor souls, and who was I to parade

Around, stepping on hearts, carelessly?

I started to want different things

Things I was so unfamiliar with

I almost gave up, gave in to the madness

Almost handed my soul to the devil

Because I thought he deserved it

And I deserved him

But then, I stood up

Sometimes with such vague conviction

That this time, from here on out

I would never let another difficulty

Stop me

I would help

Those who need me

Hand-Selected Wisdom From Albert Einstein

He had many gems for quotes, but these are some good ones. Enjoy!

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.  Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.

Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.

I must be willing to give up what I am in order to become what I will be.

Time is an illusion.

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree, it will live it’s whole life believing that it is stupid.

If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairytales.  If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairytales.

Once you accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something, wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.

Gold Seeping

You see the gold seeping through the cracks
A mind of matter in a blender
Volcano erupts
Stronger than the disrupt
Curve balls a specialty
God like a YoYo almost grazing the floor to pop back up in the knick of time
Cut the string
A bounce is better
Let in the Royal Flush
