"We have all made mistakes, 
and G-d, I’ve made mistakes.
But my mistakes haven’t made me.”

"Take a breath and think about your loved ones,

step back from this shield you’ve relied on.

You’re a man and now it’s your chance,

put your chin up and make a move. “

I’ll take another punch for you,
tie my hands behind my back, that way you cannot lose.

Love. Pain. Hate. Rain… we’re alright, alright.

I’m alright. “

"There are objects of affection,

that can mesmerize the soul.”

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.” 
― C.S. Lewis

Falling from the sky, day one. You never learned to fly.
Falling into the ocean, day seven. You never learned to swim.
Sinking to the bottom of the ocean, day twenty. How could you see the bottom?
Sinking to the bottom of the ocean, day one hundred… day one hundred… day one hundred.

Why can‘t you see the bottom? Why can‘t you see the bottom?”

"I woke up today and felt my age for the first time,
in both my mind and body.
And my thoughts are less of fitting in,
and more, more of being a better man.”

I just want to be a better man.

"There’s no light that never burns out.
I can’t stand the thought of you holding onto nothing, 
when you’ve got everything left to lose. 
We were young and troublesome.
We had no one.
Now, scream it…
Where’s the love?”

"Lying awake in bed, feeling the spot on my chest, where you used to rest your head."
