Work hard in silence, let your success be your noise.
be happy. explore. explore nature, explore yourself, explore others. listen to music. make art, even if it’s not very good. read books. read kerouac, ginsberg, blake, shelley, kafka, kesey. have real conversations. avoid small talk. exercise. do yoga. stretch. smile. watch less television. eat food you enjoy. learn something new everyday. live. your. fucking. life.
And it’s hard to hate someone once you understand them.
How I’m leaving work today.
So wherever you are I hope you’re happy
I really do
I hope the stars are kissing your cheeks tonight
I hope you finally found a way to quit smoking
I hope your lungs are open and breathing your life
I hope there’s a kite in your hand
that’s flying all the way up to orion
and you still got a thousand yards of string to let out
I hope you’re smiling
like god is pulling at the corners of your mouth
cause I might be naked and lonely
shaking branches for bones
but I’m still time zones away
from who I was the day before we met
you were the first mile
where my heart broke a sweat
and I wish you were here
I wish you’d never left
but mostly I wish you well
I wish you my very very best
