A Letter to the Good

It's hard to be someone with good but silent intentions around people who judge only what the eyes can see and what the ears can hear.

Everyone expects everything to be laid in front of them. 
Every reason, every explanation that their little brains can't fathom.
It's so easy for everyone to assume the worst in people, and so hard for them to see the good. 
They see the explicit wrongs but are blind to the implicit goods.

It's hard to be someone who has a different way of doing things around people who succumb to conformity.

The same people who claim to have an open mind are also the first to judge whoever steps out of the box. 
They claim to believe things for the sake of looking good, not for the sake of doing nor being good.
What they cannot understand, what they aren't, they consider wrong.

It's hard to be someone who puts others first around people who exert no effort in fighting their selfish human nature.

People know no limits. 
They take and take, only looking if their buckets are full and not bothering to check  if the others' are empty.
The selfless serve themselves, the selfish are self-serving.

It's hard to be someone with a good heart when you know that not everyone has the same heart as you.

But despite the series of disappointments that other people bring you,
Choose to stay the same,
There's no such thing as destroying the likes of others, doing so would only mean joining them.


Always remember that it's good to be good. Not just because there aren't many of what you are, then you should change how you are. You get more in return when you don't expect it, and get less when you do. Do for others though they won't do for you. 

If you're one of the good, keep in mind the difference between what it feels like to get hurt, and what it feels like to be helped. Being good can cause a lot of pain. Anticipate it, but don't avoid feeling it. Feeling is a gift, a gateway to deeper understanding. You're far more appreciated than you think you are, even if sometimes it feels like whatever you do only goes unnoticed. 
Be strong.

"Strong people don't put others down. They lift them up."

Finite Infinity

If you try to think of life as a movie, a book, or a game, you are always the main character in it. Everything that happens in life is seen in your own perspective. It isn't an act of selfishness. You can think of the others and put yourself in their shoes all you want, but it won't change that fixed perspective because no matter what you try to do, you are you. You are the one thinking of others. You are the one putting yourself in the shoes of others. But you will never become who the others are. You will never become anyone else aside from yourself. Changing how you are and how you see things is different from changing who you are, because the former is doable and the latter is not. It is your life which you live. You are the center of your life, but you are not the center of life itself. 

There will be a lot of things for you to realize within the course of your existence. There have already been so many things which you've realized, and maybe you're not even on half of the life you're gonna live. You take a certain shape with a height and weight that's measurable, but your whole being will always remain immeasurable.

You are infinite. An infinity of combined aspects contained in a single body, with an infinity of thoughts contained in one small brain, with an infinity of emotions contained in a single heart, and with an infinity of possible experiences contained in one- and only one lifetime. There are thoughts you've had, and thoughts which you are just about to have, no matter how deep or shallow. You are capable of thinking about anything, and everything. You have felt a lot of things, feelings with different causes and different effects on your being, and you are bound to feel more. You have experienced what you have experienced, but your experiences are not limited to what you've already experienced. You are fated to experience so much more.  The possible combinations of your thoughts, emotions, and experiences are endless. They are limitless, because you. are. infinite.

And that's only you. I am another unique combination of infinities, and I am not you. Everyone you encounter as you walk on the streets is another unique combination of infinities, and these people are not you either. You never thought- and you will never be able to think of how infinite others may be, because we are not you. We are side characters in your story, like how you are a side character in ours.  But I tell you, we are infinite, too. The world is full of walking infinities made finite by the shape they're contained in. Infinities which your eyes are capable of seeing as a whole on the surface, but never right through.


We are finite infinities.

When Forgetting Is Good



They say it hurts when you try to forget, but why does it have to?
Couldn't it be something nice for once,
Getting rid of the memories of all you've gone through?


Oversized shirts, hoodies, handwritten letters, song compilations on mixtapes
Dried rose petals, chocolates, and little notes contained in boxes of all shapes

These are not one-time possessions, never to come back once thrown away
But treasures I'd happily re-treasure when they've failed to stay

And you're a fond memory that I'd choose to forget every now and then
For somehow, I secretly wish to unmeet you

Only to meet you again.
