For a wound to heal, you have to clean it out. Again, and again, and again. And this cleaning process stings. The cleaning of a wound hurts. Yes. Healing takes so much work. So much persistence. And so much patience. But every process has an end and an appointed term. Your healing will come, God willing. And like all created things, your worldly pain will die.

Anonymous said: I think I've fallen in love with you. Can we get married and have kids and live happily every after?

Unfortunately, I’ve kinda fallen for someone and I’m currently in the pursuit of annoying her with my existence even though I don’t really see her that much (shots fired [she follows me on Tumblr]).

So, no. We can’t live happily ever after, because I may be trying to give someone else that ending. Somehow. Maybe.

Shut up.

The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.

The female doesn’t want a rich man or a handsome man or even a poet, she wants a man who understands her eyes if she gets sad, and points to his chest and say : “Here is your home country.”
