Have you ever read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho? It is a story that was created to explain how nature and everything in it are all various forms of one spirit: the spirit of the universe.
In The Road Less Traveled, M. Scott Peck explains that life isn’t about stagnancy, it’s about evolution. He describes spiritual balance as a commitment to reality, love and the possibility of change.
They say you’re sly. No wonder why you seem like me. You frolick, free…
STOP Commenting on my boobs. STOP Making me feel used. STOP Taking away my hope. STOP Deeming women a joke.

I guess I’m to blame
THE ANXIETY ENSUES AS I PLAN FOR MY DAY.

of the way things used to be

So I can’t see
Inside of me
