I searched everywhere for love.
I knocked on every door
and turned over every stone.
But it was only until I returned home
that I found love
waiting for me.

They said my solution was foreign because I lived on another planet. It required honesty. It required communication. It required kindness. It required integrity. It required compassion. It required empathy. It required a deep understanding of what it meant to be humane. It required courage to be something above the others. It required proving your love of God.

It is raining blood today.
I open my book and write “Black Lives Matter

All I want in this life are three…
a moonlit beach on the starlit sea,
a breath of opium,
and thee.

In a world where things are moving so fast, don’t get lost in the midst of it all. Figure out what’s more important to you and proceed with confidence. I know it gets a bit hectic at times and almost seems impossible. But, you can get there, even if you must pause along the way. Just don’t come to a complete stop.
