Live fast, die old!

feels like yesterday

When our little light of hope turns down

In the dark I’ll wait for you

With our voices raised up

Do we really leave this all behind, just like that

Before your anger, after my tears

Our hearts find the way, when our minds really can’t

Under our words, deep under our thoughts

I want to think we should never be apart

I didn’t need you to catch me

I just wanted you to stop pushing me over the edge

vakaros

Vīraka dūmakā tīta es vienmēr jūtos nedaudz laimīgāka. Ķīmija un vakara nogurums. Vien sveču gaismas pavadīts tu izgāji no istabas. Un tu nekad neatnāci atpakaļ, jo te tev bija pārāk tumši. Un es naivi gaidīju, iedegdama vēl trīs sveces. Es ieraku savu mīlestību zem lielā ozola pie mājas, kurā pavadīju bērnības laimīgākās vasaras dienas. Un es atzīmēju kartē ar krustiņu, gluži kā aprokot dārgumus. Bet neviens man nepateica, ka manas topogrāfiskās dotības nekam neder. Un es aizmirsu, kur ir ierakta mana mīlestība. Un tu nekad to neatradi. Bet es apsolu, tā ir kaut kur, turpināsim meklēt.

Bet kamēr es nespēju tev to pierādīt, uzraksti man vēstuli. Liec savu būtību uz papīra un atklāj savas kārtis. Cilvēcības kārtis, nevis mīlestības. Jo mīlestība nav spēle, taču cilvēki ir. Un, iespējams, pēc gadiem 50 mūs apglabās kopā zem lielā ozola pie mājas, kurā es vai tu pavadīji savas bērnības laimīgākās vasaras dienas. Un tad mēs saplūdīsim vienā mīlestībā, kuru visu dzīvi meklējām. Un tad vairs nebūs nozīmes, vai tā bija mana mīlestība vai tava, mēs sauksim to par mūsu. Bet uzraksti vēstuli ar tumši zilu pildspalvu, tev taču vienai vēl uz virtuves plauktiņa jābūt. Mana adrese ir tā pati – apkārt zemeslodei un pa labi, trešā iela un ceturtā māja. Aizmirsīsim apstākļus, kuri jauc gaisu vēl vairāk kā vīraks un aromātisko eļļu ķīmiskās reakcijas. Uzraksti vēstuli kaut vai tikai domās. Pirms iešu gulēt, mēģināšu saklausīt otrā pasaules malā ceturtajā mājā uz trešās ielas.

21 People On What They Would Tell Their 19-Year-Old Selves

Jonathan, 55:
There is no such thing as “the only one”. You will meet lots of “the ones”. Only commit when the timing is right for the both of you – that can take years for some, and that’s okay.
Miranda, 24:
Drop pre-med.
Isaac, 48:
Deodorant does not count as a shower, and that haircut only looked good on Bon Jovi.
Anya, 42:
Make the conscious decision to be happy, and then stick with it. Society will do everything in its power to convince you that your personal happiness is dependent on something external – beauty, success, wealth, etc. – it isn’t.
Parker, 55:
60% of the things you think are important now won’t matter a whit to you by the time you reach 50. The trick is to figure out the important 40% and work it.
Megan, 34:
He doesn’t love you, and you will be okay.
Peter, 58:
Don’t let anything stand in your way of taking part (or all) of your junior year abroad. You’ll never again have quite the same opportunity to experience a foreign land, for an extended period of time, in your youth. It is destined to be one of the most memorable aspects of your life.
Eleanor, 67:
Talk less. Listen more.
Donald, 27:
There’s a huge difference between who you want to be and who everyone around you wants you to be. Figure out which is which.
Camille, 56:
Always remember: when falling off a horse, pull your tongue in.
Jackson, 57:
No one knows anything for sure. They’re all just doing the best they can with what they have, just like you.
Vicki, 47:
You’ll never have all the answers, so make every question count.
Donald, 38:
You don’t have to grow up to be the dad you never had.
Katelyn, 30:
Make the most out of college. You will never again be at a place where your only goal is to learn. Learn a lot, learn often, and learn with reckless abandon.
Joshua, 55:
Women love to laugh.
Annabelle, 38:
Drugs are not beautiful, glamorous or opulent. They are not a remedy, a solution, a cure-all, or a cure-anything.
Colin, 50:
You miss so much life when you sleep until 3 PM. Wake up to see sunrises; they are the most stunning of nature’s masterpieces.
Eleanor, 26:
Eating two pints of ice cream won’t make you happy. Neither will sprinting 10 miles. Be nice to yourself.
Aaron, 52:
Don’t forget to ask that girl in the Oberlin library what kind of perfume she’s wearing. You’ll buy it for her in 20 years.
Scarlett, 54:
Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Those that get you will love you, those that don’t, well, their loss. Just remember: Wherever you are, it’s a party.
Zack, 9:
I hope you’re awesome. And be nice to girls.
