Keep Art Alive :: “Dysmorphic” :: Art by Vincent Hui

And we both know,
that people change,
when truth’s not part of their lives;
I’ve seen the love in their eyes,
don’t say goodbye,
goodbye.

The saddest thing I have ever seen is defeated eyes. The most tragic words I have ever heard are “what if”. There is nothing left but regret when you give up a dream without ever giving it a chance. If nothing else, I hope I teach my children that. Take a deep breath, hold your head high, swallow your fear, and try. And, always remember, that failing and falling on one’s backside does not have to mean you have given up.

I am reminded of Ally Sheedy’s character’s quote from The Breakfast Club, when Allison says “when you grow up your heart dies“. Perhaps I just refuse to completely grow up, or maybe I just refuse to let my heart die. My dreams, they may be fuzzy and full of obstacles, and some days I wake up with so much disillusionment that I feel they will never be. But, I try – fucking hell, I try – to keep a hold of my heart, my dreams, my wishes, and all those pieces of who that makes me.
